"SHARE THE LOVE" PROGRAM CHOOSES OUR SPECIAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT

Jersey City Public Schools Department of Special Education is honored to once again be the recipient of Subaru’s “Share the Love” grant. On Tuesday, May 10, 2016, a presentation ceremony was held at PS 22 and representatives from Hudson Subaru and Subaru Distributors Corporation awarded the district a check for $19, 962.23. Andy Shapiro, Christina DiFeo-Petrella, Donald Allen and James Foley who came to present the check also participated in a bowling event hosted by Lynette Kilawattie-Garcia’s class and Mary Hussey, Lead Teacher for Adapted Physical Education. Candace Coccaro, Supervisor of Special Education, Mr. Oscar Velez, the principal of PS 22, along with Ms. Garcia and her class, accepted the check with great pride. The money will be used to fund the creation of two multi-sensory indoor playgrounds, primarily for students with autism and intellectual disabilities. These playgrounds will be located at two sites, Rev. Dr. Ercel F. Webb School 22 and Anthony J. Infante School 31. In addition, the Department of Special Education will use some of the funds to send students on various field trips. The Department of Special Education has been the recipient of the “Share the Love” grant for three consecutive years. During the Subaru “Share the Love” promotion customers who purchased or leased new cars had the option to allocate $250 to one of four national charities or Hudson Subaru’s “hometown” charity, the JCPS Department of Special Education! Eileen Herron, Lead Teacher of the Adapted Physical Education program, has worked with Hudson Subaru for the past several years, and the district has received $39,685.12 in total. The generosity of the “Share the Love” grant has provided students with opportunities to participate in field trips, receive equipment, and engage in new experiences. Dr. Gerard Crisonino, Director of Special Education, and the Department of Special Education are profoundly appreciative of the continued support Hudson Subaru provides for our district and the students in our community.

Fresh off of a victory at the Junior Theater Festival, Mrs. Oliver, Ms. Montanez, and the Conwell Kidz are in rehearsal for their upcoming production of Hairspray, Jr. In Mrs Oliver's rendition, audience members are taken back in time to a place of a tube televisions, live studios, high hair do's and dance-offs. Set in the 1960's, a time where color barriers were being broken, Tracy Turnblad (Lea Diaz) sets on a mission to dance the night away on the Corny Collins show. The production offers students the opportunity to put themselves into characters and personalities that represent the trials and tribulations of the times. Mrs. Oliver has transformed the Mary Ann Wallace Theatre into the living room of so many apartments and homes from the 1950's. Get a first hand look at how music and dance transformed pop culture by bringing together children of all shapes and sizes from different backgrounds.
