North Haledon Annex
The New Beginnings Annex, North Haledon program is K through 4th Grade Memorial Elementary School on Squaw Brook Road. The students are all residents of North Haledon and surrounding districts. The students receive approximately 2 hours of 1:1 discrete trial teaching every day, as well as their related services (Speech, OT, PT). The majority of the day the students partake in typical school activities where they are given the opportunity to learn age-appropriate academic, play, social, and self-help skills in small and large group settings. It is a forward-thinking, comprehensive, research-based and research-proven curriculum resource that honors children’s creativity and respects their critical role in making learning exciting and relevant for every child. In addition, the students get to attend and participate in all school-wide assemblies with their typical peers for a variety of purposes. There are also opportunities for the students to interact with Memorial School’s other classes for special activities and on the school playground during recess times.
