Last Saturday, April 30th, EJF/Aldene School staff members as well as friends and family concluded their 30-day celebration of Autism Awareness Month by taking part in the New Jersey Marathon 5K in Long Branch.
School principal Julianne Bello commented on the event, “I am so proud of my staff and their commitment to inclusive education for all, and working to spread awareness. Gina Mulholland, our school psychologist, did an amazing job of coordinating our participation and fundraising efforts. Aldene has again proven itself to be the “’School with a Heart!’.”
