On May 19th, the Rock Brook School in Skillman, NJ hosted its 3rd Annual Family Night/Community Open House. Growing bigger and better every year, this event offers the opportunity to the community to visit the school and meet the students, staff and families who make Rock Brook such a special place. For more than 40 years, Rock Brook School has provided education and assistance and support for children with special needs, their families and professionals. Serving children from 3-21, the school has helped hundreds of kids reach their full potential as fulfilled, self-confident individuals and in turn become productive members of the community. Mark Caliguire, Somerset County Freeholder and former Mayor of Montgomery, attended the festivities. He thanked RBS Director Mary Caterson for her 30 years of service and spoke of the tremendous impact she and the school has had upon thousands of our children. RBS’ event took place at the conclusion of Special Education Week. A chain link Connections Project was unveiled which demonstrated how each student, staff and family is connected. This year’s Open House festivities also included several food trucks, arts & crafts, a DJ and pony rides by Dustin, courtesy of Unicorn Therapeutic Riding.
