Wolfe School Hosts Community Fair
On January 15th, Wolfe School hosted a Community Fair designed to provide valuable information and resources for parents, caregivers, and advocates of individuals with developmental disabilities. In order to accommodate the schedules of busy families, the fair was offered once in the morning and once in the evening. Presenters included the Clerk of Courts (Guardianship), Cardinal Innovations, Community Relations Specialist/Latino Outreach Coordinator, the ARC of Union County, and Developmental Disabilities Resources (DDR). After the presentations, attendees were given the opportunity to participate in a question and answer session and visit display booths for each agency.
The event received excellent feedback and was well attended, with a total turnout of 50 people. Wolfe School would like to thank all of the represented community agencies as well as Belle Walker (UCPS social worker) and Jewel Wiesinger (UCPS school psychologist).
Wolfe School Participates in “Soup”er Bowl of Caring
Wolfe School recently participated in “Souper Bowl of Caring” to help collect canned goods and money for our local food pantry. Souper Bowl of Caring is a national youth movement that uses “the energy of the Super Bowl to mobilize youth in a united national effort to care for people in their local communities who are hungry and those in need” (http://www.souperbowl.org/info/267/Mission_and_Vision).
During the week before and after the Super Bowl, students collected canned goods and monetary donations. There was a school-wide competition to see which class could raise the most combined money and food. In the end, the winning classes were Mrs. Spacek and Mrs. Ellis. Congratulations to these students! We are proud to announce that we raised $1,784.00 and collected 464 food items to donate to our local food pantry.
