Horizon High School Wheelin’ – n’ – Walkin’ Challenge

Horizon High School held its annual Wheelin’ – n’ – Walkin’ Challenge fundraiser today. Students, staff, volunteers, and families gathered to walk the concourse of Horizon High. Thanks go out to all who donated, participated and orchestrated this fantastic event! This year, the walk raised over $69,000 for Horizon High School’s annual fund. We would like to extend our most heartfelt gratitude to our top fundraisers: Bob Murray (over $15,000), The Halkyard Family (over $11,000) and the Machemer family (over $6,000). We would also like to congratulate the event committee (Janet Pereira-Spain, Katie Regan, Ted Groh, Beth Ann Rueter, Ken Brucato, Laura Vesuvio, Laura Maresciallo, Jennymond Sawyer, Jennifer McClean)! Cheers to another fantastic year!

JUMPSTART!

For the last JUMPSTART! Therapeutic Playgroup session of the spring season, our friends jumped in Horizon Elementary School’s indoor 92-degree aquatic therapy pool for a fun and relaxing final playgroup. In this session Horizon therapists taught parents how to safely handle their child in a water environment, while encouraging various position changes that are relevant to swimming and water safety. Movement in the warm water of the aquatic therapy pool addresses fine motor, gross motor, increased vocalization, and social interaction skills. This allowed the children to experience physical freedom of movement in a supportive, buoyant environment. Special thanks to all of our Early Intervention families for another spectacular playgroup!

CPNJ’s Horizon Elementary School is set to host an abbreviated summer session of its JUMPSTART! Early Intervention Therapeutic Playgroup! Enrollment is now open.
