The Old Forge School District Special Education Department was recently awarded a grant written by Special Education Director Michele Hopkins and presented by Ronald McDonals House Cahirities of NEPA. It will be used to help bring a “School Store” which will be operated by students in Special Education between the ages 14 and 21. Students will learn how to run a school store and socialization skills with their peers. This will be an “in-school training program.” From left, John Rushefski, superintendent; Jessica Casey, learning support teacher; Karly Hine, learning support teacher; Carol Mueller, Owner, McDonald’s, who awarded the grant; Susie Aulisio, special education teacher; Justin McDonnell, Michele Hopkins, special education director; Joan Wilk, school board member; Atty.
