Thank You to Our Community Supporters!

7-Eleven
Thanks to a generous grant from our local 7-Eleven, we were able to purchase character education and behavior intervention materials.  The Social Thinking curriculum will be used with all of our Kindergarten Students.  Additional Social Thinking and Flexible Thinking materials will be used in small group interventions, K-2.

Buddy Bench
Thanks to PTO and College Square parent leadership and generous financial support from community business and private family donations, we have been able to purchase a replacement Buddy Bench for our playground!  To foster friendship and communication skills, students who need a friend to play with on the playground can sit on the Buddy Bench.  Peers are quick to invite them to play with them.
 
The project was funded by almost 20 small businesses and friends and families of the school.  Our appreciation to Keystone Ridge Designs in Butler, PA, for providing the bench at a reduced price to help to support this project at our school!
