Student Achieves his Dream

(01.22.2016) - Burger King in Warrington, PA has entrusted their customer service to Dane, one of NHS School Warrington’s students. For several months, Dane has been dreaming of gaining community employment, increasing his independence and earning his own money. Burger King made Dane’s dream a reality by hiring him this past fall. His success has been astounding! Dane has taken on many responsibilities, including working in the drive thru during the lunch rush, maintaining the lobby and delivering food to customers. His dedication to his job is excellent. Dane ensures that he is clean, dressed and prepared for work. He stays focused during his job and works hard according to his manager. Dane’s family has been very supportive of his progress as he transitions into adulthood and we feel blessed to have him in our school. Dane encourages other students to reach for their goals and to make good choices in life. Keep up the good work, Dane!

Student Gains Community Employment

(01.22.2016) - Antinino (Nino) is a bright young man in Ms. Amy's classroom at NHS School Warrington. He is helpful, intelligent and loves coming to school each day. However, Nino desired more in his life. With the support of his teacher, Nino gained employment at Chick-Fil-A in Warrington, PA. He began working earlier this month and has been doing excellent. Nino works as the lobby host, and refills customers’ drinks, greets them and wishes them farewell. He also maintains the lobby and assists customers with their meals. It is incredible to see how well Nino is generalizing the skills he has learned at the school into the community so quickly. Nino is proud of his independence and of his ability to earn his own money. We are all so proud to see how quickly he has blossomed into a bright young man. This experience has helped Nino understand the importance of hard work and staying focused as he moves into adulthood.

Group Contingency

(10.30.2015) - NHS School Warrington utilizes the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to improve educational and behavioral outcomes for the students we serve. One of the strategies used this year was a group contingency to improve the social, communication, coping and cooperation skills of our students. Aligned with our School-wide Positive Behavior Support Plan, students worked together to earn enough Dragon Dollars to spray Ms. Jamie, the Director of the program, with silly string. All the students had to support one another in making the right decisions to achieve their goal. The students accomplished this objective and were thrilled at the opportunity to be silly at school.

A visit from the Fire Department

The students are learning methods of maintaining the landscape around their school building. They are excited to plant and nurture new life and watch it grow with their care. It’s a great, hands-on way to learn about science too!

The festivities took place on the NHS Woodhaven Campus in Northeast Philadelphia, and began with all staff, students and guests participating in a brisk and energetic walk around the long campus drive in honor of their good friend Matty. Once the walk was completed, students, staff and family members enjoyed a variety of circus-themed activities and food, including posing for portraits with the bearded/mustached lady, performing acrobatic flips in the giant moon bounce, jumping through watery hoops on the giant slip-and slide, and eating freshly-spun cotton candy. There was a fabulous turnout of family members and guests for a fantastic day that won't soon be forgotten. The students are looking forward to Field Day 2015!
