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!
Part of the race proceeds will go to support Birchtree’s autism programs. To register to participate in the race, click here.
Birchtree’s students recently enjoyed a school-wide Prom. Students created rainforest-themed decorations for the event, got dressed up for the occasion, danced in the gym, posed for photos, did a “Grand Promenade” procession, crowned a Prom King and Queen, and enjoyed some delicious refreshments. Thanks to our fantastic Prom Committee and to the Birchtree parents for helping making this event possible!
On May 8th, Birchtree’s students, families, staff, and friends gathered at Stratham Hill Park for a Field Day and Awards Ceremony to celebrate the successful conclusion of We Fit: A Fitness Challenge for Autism Awareness Month. Participants enjoyed games, sports, contests, bubbles, face-painting, and a picnic.
This April, Birchtree’s students, families, staff, board members and friends set individual health and fitness goals to commemorate Autism Awareness Month. All month long, they walked, ran, swam, danced, biked, did yoga, tried healthy new foods, and much more.
