Autistic Support Classroom Pennsylvania Autism Initiative at Solomon
The Autistic Support classrooms at Solomon Plains Elementary are all a part of the Pennsylvania Autism Initiative (PAI). It is a very rigid and structured program developed to assist students diagnosed with autism, with necessary academic, social, and independence skills. Autistic Support classroom teacher, Maria Deno, having attained model status within her classroom, was chosen to model the necessary components of the program. These video recordings will be located on the PATTAN website, used for trainings through PATTAN, and other educational resources. This is a great honor and we just want to congratulate Miss Deno on a job well done!

The Heart at Franklin Institute 6th Grade Trip Fun
The Solomon-Plains Elementary 6th grade recently went on their annual 6th grade trip.  For eight years, they have been going to the Franklin Institute and the Camden Aquarium.  We continued this tradition again this year.  At the Franklin Institute, students got to see the giant heart, make paper, and even ride the sky bike.  At the aquarium, students got to pet sharks and stingrays and see the hippos.  A second part of our yearly tradition is to dye our trip shirts with refined iron oxide.  The iron oxide is collected from abandoned mine drainage.  We continue to utilize the techniques we learned from a grant that we received 8 years ago in connection with EPCAMR.
