Clark Athletes Visit School For Kids With Special Needs

FANWOOD — On Wednesday, April 18, members of the Crusader Athletic Leadership Council from Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark participated in a visit to the First Children’s School, located in Fanwood.

The First Children’s School in Fanwood is a stepping off point for children who need highly specialized educational services for some period of time in their lives. First Children’s services extend into the home districts of students with special needs where they are invited to work with faculty and administration to assure that children with special needs get cutting-edge services in their home schools. The dedicated staffs, including teachers, aides, and therapists, are prepared to deliver their services in the schools and homes of the children they serve. First Children partners with districts and other providers like Children’s Specialized Hospital and Eden Autism Services to make sure that the children receive the very best services possible.

C.A.L.C. members went into various classrooms and participated in a multitude of activities relating to the school’s curriculum. C.A.L.C. members Becky Brattole, Bianca Briscese, Nicole Brougham, Nick Buccarelli, John Caliguire, Nick Campione, Michael Cieslak, Joanna Couto, Sal DeMarzo, Ali Dugan, Kevin Eipel, Tyler Faede, Jenna Rose-Fraser, Dan Hogan, Nicole Imbriaco, Samorri Johnson, Alison Meagher, Sean Meyers, Kyle Mogenson, Brian Moran, Sarah Panetta, Lance Pecina, Sam Rodrigues, Amanda Rusin, Jeff Siessel, John Stauffer, Michael Vieira, Amanda Wnorowski, and Andrew Zub all participated in the visit to the First Children’s School.

Gus Kalikas, Supervisor of Athletics, Health, and Physical Education at Arthur L. Johnson High School, said. “The C.A.L.C. was thrilled to be able to assist with the daily routines of the First Children’s School. It was fun watching the High School Student Athletes as they interacted with the children, and I think both groups not only enjoyed the experience, but learned a lot while doing it.”
