This Friday, April 27th – Special Needs Summer Activities and Resources (Final Meeting of the 2011-2012 School Year)!

April 23, 2012 3 comments

I can’t believe it, but this Friday, April 27th, is our final meeting at PS 163 of The Foorce.

Because I sadly have had to cancel Lydia (insufficient funding, trying to reschedule), the meeting this week will be all about providing resources for summer activities and camps – I’ve collected more than a few over the last couple months of camp fairs and conferences and I’m looking to share. This meeting will also offer an opportunity to find out about and sign up for the casual social group that has met weekly for the last 3 summers – absolutely free and a great social outlet if your child isn’t booked up for the summer.

Anyone and everyone with a special needs friend or loved one is invited to join us – the meeting will be from 9:00am until everyone leaves and small children are welcome (I’m bringing 2!). As usual, the meeting will be held at PS 163 (corner of W. 97th and Amsterdam) and will be in the cafeteria or auditorium depending on availability.

Hope to see you on Friday!

More Fun Meetups for Special Needs Families and Friends – August Calendar

You can clearly credit my enthusiasm for Day Of The Post this morning (yesterday morning now) and my motivation to catch up on things to the fact that I had not yet stepped foot outside. By the time I returned from my hot, sticky trip to gymnastics, Blockbuster, picking up prescriptions and grocery shopping my inspiration had melted away along with my patience (and mascara).

I promptly fell asleep tucking the children in and woke around midnight feeling refreshed, now that the temperature has come down a little from the zillion degree heat index of the day (actually 115, but they don’t do a heat index for wearing babies outside).

So in one last dedication to Day Of The Post I present to you the August meetup calendar, only scheduled through the 24th because we will be on vacation that last week. Hope to see you at a few of these fun get togethers!

August 4 – Highbridge Pool, 11:00-1:00pm, trying to get as much water time in as possible as the summer flies by (you are welcome to join us any Thursday for free swim here through August 18)!

August 6 – BounceU Open Bounce Will post time as soon as they set the schedule, probably at 10 or noon though.

August 12 – Central Park Brass at Robert Bendheim Playground, a “playground for all children.” Interactive concert starts at 11:00am, we’ll stay for a picnic, playground and sprinklers afterward.

August 14 – Bronx Zoo, 11:00-4:00pm

August 16 – Thomas Jefferson Park, 10:30am We’ll already be over there for adaptive track if anyone is interested in participating, but also plan to hang out at the shaded playground, and maybe the pool weather/crowd permitting (we are here every Tuesday through August 16).

August 20 – NYC Police Museum, 12:30pm http://www.nycpm.org

September 5 – Goodbye Summer, Hello School Year Picnic! Details TBD.
