Halloween is one of the most anticipated holidays at Matheny and presents an opportunity for families of our students and patients to participate in the festivities.

The day starts off with a haunted house, designed by our therapy and school staff members, and concludes with a Halloween parade and party with refreshments supplied by The Friends of Matheny.

The day’s activities are coordinated by Matheny’s recreation therapy department, which provides a variety of recreation opportunities and resources throughout the year to improve students’ and patients’ physical, emotional, cognitive and social well-being.
