Students at Roosevelt Children's Center had a surprise visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus this week. The visit was complete with presents, a candy cane, and a chance to talk to Santa for each child.
We hope everyone has a merry Christmas!

Mitchell was trying to be silly when he got his picture taken, but we got a little smile out of him! Share a smile with someone on this great Monday!
Happy Monday, everyone! Today is the first day of our new Story and a Smile campaign for Roosevelt Children's Center, and we just wanted to give you an overview of the project. For the next few weeks, we will be posting a photo of a smiling RCC student to brighten everyone's day. Please feel free to visit our Facebook page, and share the posts.
The goal of this campaign is to increase the number of smiles we see in the world. And what better way to share a smile than sharing one of a happy kid? We hope you enjoy these photos and share a smile with our happy students.
Roosevelt Children's Center hosted its annual fall festival for all of the children during school. It was a fun way to go outside and play with all of their friends in a safe and structured environment.
Activities included playing in hay, tractor rides and petting small farm animals. The weather ended up being perfect to enjoy all of the outdoor fun.
Our annual Open House and Book Fair was a huge hit this year. Students were able to take their family and friends through school and show everyone their classrooms. The Scholastic Book Fair raised more than $1,000 in free books for the children of Roosevelt this year. Thank you to everyone who supported us!
Jessica Blondell, our Development Coordinator, writes all of our blog posts to keep everyone who supports The Arc Wayne up-to-date with what the agency is doing in the community. Enjoy!
