Sibling Day at NSSA!

i Aug 19th No Comments by

Once a year we invite siblings and families to join students at the Martin C. Barell School for a day of fun and activities. This year was a packed house! The big bouncy house and slide in the backyard was a hit, the playground was bustling with kids of all ages, and the classrooms were set up for arts & crafts when a little quiet time was needed. It was also Luau Day, which made for an even more festive atmosphere!

Halloween Party 2013 (11)

QUESTION: What is cuter than a bunch of Martin C Barell students dressed up as their favorite characters??

Our annual Halloween Party was on October 31, and students, clients, and staff showed up dressed as favorite characters, leopards, and hamburgers, oh my! The older students manned activity tables helping the younger kids play matching games, make holiday shakers, and stick their hands into gross stuff participate in the sensory station. Everyone had a good time – who doesn’t love a party?!?
