Teacher, Ryan Brattole and student, Maddie, distance learning.

The Phoenix center – Casino Night Canceled: Transitioning to a distance learning model due to Covid19 has brought out the best in our school community. As you can imagine, it has provided opportunities to broaden the scope of delivering our curriculum and it has presented challenges that both our students and staff are doing well to overcome. We have had to cancel our Casino Night event previously scheduled for Friday, May 1st due to Covid19. The cancelling of this event was a very difficult decision because it typically raises more than $35,000 of support to our students and school programs. We are so sorry we won’t get to see you in person but we’re hoping to keep the “togetherness” alive and well by sharing stories about our favorite fantastic Phoenix Center staff! Below, see our teacher, Ryan Brattole, with Maddie, distance learning together! Thank you for being a part of our school community. We look forward to keeping you updated on new developments in our distance learning model while sharing inspiring stories of how our staff, students and families are not only surviving but thriving. Feel free to email csharaway@thephoenixcenternj.org with a photo and/or an inspiring story about your child and our TPC staff participating in distance learning.
