Art, Music & Fun Fridays at Birchtree


Birchtree’s day-school students enjoy regular art and music classes as well as “Fun Fridays” featuring hands-on activities on various themes. In art class, students have explored collage, tie dye, batik, and printing techniques. In music class, students have enjoyed playing drums, metallophones, and a singing bowl. Some students have even composed and played their own songs! Our Fun Friday activities have included digital drawing on a smartboard, science experiments, a nature-themed scavenger hunt, outdoor games, and more.

When you bid and donate in our online auction this November, you’ll fund supplies and equipment for these essential programs. You can register as a bidder here. THANK YOU for helping make learning fun and engaging for students with autism!

Thanks to everyone who supported our 2021 Wellness Challenge!


THANK YOU to everyone who donated to Birchtree this spring to build a Birchtree playground! You helped us raise over $44,000 towards the project–exceeding our original fundraising goal and breaking our previous record for our annual Wellness Challenge fundraiser! If you intended to donate but haven’t contributed yet, you can still donate here. We look forward to installing the playground later this year and will keep you posted on our progress!
