Our initial year at Fairhaven has been both successful, from a program evaluation perspective, as well as a real joy thanks to Principal, Rosanne Morell, her staff, and the parents and students who comprise this wonderful community of learners. Our Count Me In instructor, Jon Dean, loved his twice-weekly visits to Fairhaven and that love showed itself in the relationship he created with his students. Jon’s group met in the school’s cafeteria for their sessions throughout the year, and the cafeteria workers looked forward to these occasions almost as much as the kids did. We saw and felt all of this during our April visit to the school’s Annual Talent Show. Fairhaven is a truly joyous environment in which to work and learn, and the Fairhaven staff has always made us feel welcome and valued. Our thanks go out to them and the funders who help to make our presence there possible. We’re genuinely excited to be returning to Fairhaven for a second year!.
