Horizon Elementary School Life Skills Room Update

Progress continues on Horizon Elementary School’s new life skills room! Once completed, our life skills room will offer a full kitchen with a stove, washer and dryer. These appliances are adapted with the use of environmental control units which can accommodate any student to make them more successful and independent in this environment. Special thanks to CPNJ’s 2020 Steps to Independence Celebration gala honoree Mike Petillo for sponsoring the room, as well as Alston Construction and their subcontractors for their pro bono work.

Group Home Fun!

Group home residents from Orange and Maplewood had a fun Saturday with volunteers from the group Young Muslims of Teaneck Darul Islah. The volunteers helped residents to create imaginative storyboard scenes using photos of their housemates. The visit ended with a game of hot potato… with a twist. The “hot potato” was a wacky costume piece to wear! After several rounds the results had everyone cracking up!
