“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”  ~ Dr. Suess


The Taylor Aguilar Scholarship Fund is going to be accepting applications for grants/funding that we plan to make for the Summer of 2017.  It is intended for students with special needs in the Ridgewood or Glen Rock community.   A link to the Taylor Fund Facebook page, which contains more information about the application process and goals of the Fund, as well as a link to the actual application, is below.  
The basic idea is that we want to make one or more grants for the Summer of 2017 for students in the range of $3,000-10,000.  The funds can be used for summer programs, therapies, camps, or really anything, to help out students with whatever their particular need is so they can have, quite simply, a better summer.

KINDNESS DRIVE FOR APRIL:  Next month we are collecting toothpaste/mouthwash for the Ridgewood Social Services Food Pantry.  The collection ends on April 5th and I invite everyone to send in at least one item.  Your children love putting their can in the bucket and getting a high five from me each month!
