CLARK — On Wednesday, June 5, members of Arthur L. Johnson High School’s Crusader Athletic Leadership Council visited First Children’s School, located in Fanwood.
First Children’s School 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 best services possible.
Crusader Athletic Leadership Council members went into various classrooms and participated in a multitude of activities relating to the school’s curriculum. Council members Pati Bailey, Ryan Baron, Stephanie Budrock, Catie Caliguire, Jaclyn Calo, Ali Dugan, Matthew Dunn, Vincent Fischetti, Joseph Lomeli, Veronica Matatov, Anabella Melro, Sean Myers, Abby Panetta, Michele Pozyc, Chris Purcell, Samantha Rodrigues, Jay Shapiro, Brian Stier, Veronica Zatko, and Andrew Zub all participated in the visit to the First Children’s School.
“The C.A.L.C. was thrilled to be able to assist with the daily routines of the First Children’s School,”said Gus Kalikas, Supervisor of Athletics, Health, and Physical Education at Arthur L. Johnson High 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.”
