Hole In The Wall Gang Update: Late last June, five hospital Outreach Specialists visited and brought the spirit of the Camp to our school. Many of our students enjoyed playing ladder ball, writing mad-libs, and making bracelets. In return, our Nelson Place students were able to give these specialists 3 cartons of children's books, 3 cartons of arts and craft supplies, a $1,000 check generously donated by one of our families, and the $1,100 raised by our used book

sale! In the words of Karen Van Cleef: "Our Outreach Specialists have raving reviews of the Nelson Place students and school. As the person who unpacks and sorts generous donations like yours, I can confidently say the supplies and funds you raised will go to great use with the kids in the hospitals." It is indeed heartwarming to know that when one of our own students was recently a patient at Boston's Children Hospital, she was visited by the Outreach Specialist and had fun making projects with our donated supplies!

Miss Quitadamo was recently informed that 16 of her former students have been selected for publication in the Summer, 2011 edition of a "Celebration of Poets." Those very talented poets include Grace Andros, Aaron Berry, Jahcere Bradshaw, Sydney Connole, Ryan Connor, Abigail Evers, Natalie Harris, Caitriona Houston, Ryan Le, Daniel Lemieux, Jamie O'Donnell, Annyelle Pego, Isabelle Perez, Arthemis Shqina, Karlie Sunden, and Elizabeth Zementowski. Congratulations!
