Bring your kids to work day

John Ebert, nephew of technology coordinator Alex Fraumann and a student at the Flocktown Elementary School in Long Valley, NJ, helps Matheny student Mark O’Connell play adapted miniature golf.

Staff members of The Matheny School brought their sons and daughters to work and then gave them a full day of education about everything that goes on in the school – from classroom instruction to adapted physical education to art and music.

The visitors saw how Matheny students benefit from the latest technology such as SMART Boards and Tables and iPads. They attended all classes, from preschool to high school, and they participated in a variety of adapted sports. It was an eye-opening experience for many and gave everyone a better understanding of the challenges and triumphs experienced daily by The Matheny School staff.
