Unified Game Day
On Tuesday, May 16th, the Markham Place Helping Hands students accompanied students from Ms. Owen's and Ms. Berkeley/Grant's class at PRS to attend the Unified Game Day that was held at Cross Farm Park in Holmdel. Over 200 Special Needs and General Education Peers were involved in the event that included Colts Neck, Little Silver and Upper Freehold Regional School districts as well as the Harbor School from Eatontown.
Athletes and peers joined together to use the skills they had learned during the school year.
On Thursday, May 18th, a small group of students participated in the first ever Excellence in Middle School Musical Theater Awards at RBR. They represented the cast, crew and pit band from The Little Mermaid, Jr. ensemble who worked very hard this year. They performed an 8 minute compilation of various scenes of the show and received positive feedback for the acting, singing, costumes and props. They received Markham's first "EMMA!" RBR is hoping to make this an annual event for Middle School Theater programs to showcase the talent and efforts of the students involved.
Los estudiantes de tercer grado tienen amigos por carta (3rd Grade Students have pen pals)
During the month of March, third grade students wrote Pen Pal letters in Spanish to children at the Red Bank Primary School. Senorita Chad (now Senora Natoli) had the children describe themselves and their interests. The letters were mailed and responses were recently received. Copies of the letters can be seen at http://senoritachad.weebly.com/pen-pal-letters.html.
