Birchtree’s day-school students, staff, and families gathered for two graduation celebrations this past December. Our graduates processed in to Pomp & Circumstance, enjoyed speeches, songs, and slideshows, and received certificates of completion. We are very proud of these young men and will miss them here at Birchtree. Congratulations and best wishes to our graduates!
Please consider purchasing a Caring Box from Calef’s Country Store this holiday season; a portion of your purchase goes to support Birchtree’s autism programs! Gift boxes are available for purchase both online and at their store in Barrington, NH.
On November 25th, students and staff gathered for a Practice Thanksgiving Feast. Classrooms teamed up to make side dishes and decorations for the meal, doing projects designed by Birchtree’s autism specialists to help students develop their communication, literacy, and fine-motor skills. The meal offered students an opportunity to sample traditional holiday foods and prepare for holiday celebrations with their families.
On November 14th, Birchtree’s friends, families, staff, and board members gathered at Redhook Brewery for our fourth annual Benefit for Learning. Guests enjoyed live music, delicious food and drink, live and silent auctions, raffles, and a Polynesian dance demonstration. We’re delighted to report that the event brought in over $33,000 in support of Birchtree’s autism programs–our most successful auction ever!
The Birchtree Center is excited and honored to be one of the beneficiaries of the The Seacoast Rotary Club’s 2015 Turkey Trot! This 5k race is held each year on Thanksgiving morning at 8:30AM in downtown Portsmouth. Families, friends, runners, walkers and costumes are welcome!
