Preschool Self-Contained
Rhythm Works Integrative Dance Program

Beginning in April 2019 – July 2019, Ms. Robin from Kaye-Lynn Dance Studio in East Brunswick visited our Special Education Preschool Students 4 times  to provide dance and gross motor movement instruction to our students.  Ms. Robin is certified in the Rhythm Works Integrative Dance Program, which certifies dance educators to provide dance instruction to students with Special Needs. 

This was a wonderful opportunity to not only expose our students to dance and movement classes, but also provide them with an opportunity to enjoy new leisure skills while building appropriate social skills.

Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to enhance our Preschool Special Education Program through your generous support.

2017-2018 Mini Grant Recipients

Escape Room Kit

During the 2017-18 school year, I applied for an SRFEE mini-grant in the hopes of getting an escape room kit that would enable me to create dynamic lessons for students to practice a multitude of skills in a variety of content areas.  The kit included the materials necessary (assorted locking mechanisms, decoders, etc.) as well as access to an online platform that offered the lessons and hints for the escape room.  The lessons were, indeed, dynamic, and were very much enjoyed by all who participated.  I have attached a short video of my former students “escaping” at the end of a lesson.  
I would like to thank SRFEE for their continued efforts to foster excellence in our community and schools.

2016 Mini Grant Recipients

While students and staff presently have access to laptops, it wasn’t that way in 2016.  However, at that time I had the opportunity to apply for a mini-grant to purchase a laptop to utilize in my classroom. After being awarded the grant, having the laptop in the classroom was extremely beneficial.  My students were able to learn basic computer skills.  They were able to search for jobs and explore different types of job applications. Having this laptop early on was a great asset to have in the classroom and I am extremely grateful to have been awarded the mini-grant from SRFEE.

Jenai Damatta, High School Life Skills Class

I along with Cassie Juba and Christine Kilduff received a mini grant to take our special education students on a field trip.  Our students are in a self contained classroom setting and benefit from hands-on experiences.  We decided to take them to the Turtle Back Zoo.  The students were able to experience the zoo, for many the first time to see and touch the animals.  Some of the students are now in high school and still talk about the experience.  Thank you SRFEE for making this experience possible for us.  You are very much appreciated.

It was a cold, blustery rainy day on the morning of October 22, 2016.  The members of the South River Foundation for Educational Excellence set up shop in the shed just near the concession stand at Denny Stadium in South River, NJ.  We did this to keep the memorabilia items that were being raffled off safe from the wind and rain that was a fixture of the South River Homecoming Game for 2016.

Despite the rain and wind, EVERYONE was in such great spirits as we awaited the arrival of the Homecoming Parade, led by the Grand Marshall our very own Drew Pearson.  Thank you to Drew Pearson & Joe Theismann who so graciously donated autographed memorabilia to help raise funds for our organization.

SRFEE Thanks all who entered the raffle and we congratulate the winners!
