Comment on : Special Ed PTO Meeting: Inclusion-How it Changes All of Us - John Witherspoon on February 4


Special Ed PTO Meeting: Inclusion-How it Changes All of Us - John Witherspoon on February 4

On Thursday, February 4, 2010, the Special Education PTO will meet at 7:30 p.m. in the cafeteria of John Witherspoon Middle School, 217 Walnut Lane, Princeton.
 
We are pleased to have as our featured speaker, Ms. Eileen Sanchez, Supervisor for Special Education of Princeton Regional Schools.   Ms. Sanchez will address the issues of inclusion of special education students and will present the powerful documentary “Including Samuel”, by photojournalist Dan Habib.
 
Dan Habib rarely thought about inclusion before is son Samuel was born.  Now he thinks about inclusion every day.  Mr. Habib’s award-winning film, Including Samuel documents his family’s hopes and struggles as well as the experiences of four other individuals with disabilities and their families.  Including Samuel – a highly personal, passionately photographed film – captures the cultural and systemic barriers to inclusion and features interviews with teachers, parents and disability rights experts.
 
Ms. Sanchez will lead a discussion period following the film.
 
The Special Education PTO seeks to enhance the education of all students district-wide through the collaborative efforts of parents, staff, child study teams and administration.  We provide informational programs throughout the year, and serve as an informal and discreet network for families seeking knowledge, recognizing and respecting privacy and individual needs. 
 
Please try to attend this meeting.  There is strength and power in knowledge which helps all of our students.
 
Note:  If you require a translator for this meeting, please call the Office of Student Services in advance, at (609)806-4206, extension 4.
