On May 19, the Rock Brook School (RBS) in Skillman hosted its Third Annual Family Night/Community Open House. This event offered an opportunity for the community to visit the school and meet the students, staff, and families who make Rock Brook such a special place.
For more than 40 years, Rock Brook School has provided education, assistance, and support for children with special needs, their families, and professionals. Serving children from 3-21, the school has helped hundreds of kids reach their full potential as fulfilled, self-confident individuals who in turn become productive members of the community.
Mark Caliguire, Somerset County freeholder and former mayor of Montgomery, attended the festivities. He thanked RBS Director Mary Caterson for her 30 years of service and spoke of the tremendous impact she and the school have had upon so many children.
RBS’s event took place at the conclusion of Special Education Week. A chain link Connections Project was unveiled, which demonstrated how each student, staff, and family is connected. This year’s open house festivities also included several food trucks, arts and crafts, a DJ, and pony rides by Dustin, courtesy of Unicorn Therapeutic Riding.
