An Orton-Gillingham education specialist from the Institute of Multisensory, Laura Sabido, joined the teachers at Huber Street School to model multisensory lessons using various materials from the Orton-Gillingham program. In the photograph above District staff who gained certification in Orton-Gillingham, pose with their trainer, Mrs. Sabido, at the conclusion of the five day training.

At the Secaucus Board of Education’s Showcase of Success on June 15th, the Board honored members of the Elementary Schools Hudson County Academic Bowl Second Place Finishers. The members of the Hudson County Academic Bowl Team were Jake Salvatore, Gabriela Romanelli, and Leoul Melis from Clarendon School; and Andrew Kashian, Matthew Kashiam, and Mykailla Harper from Huber Street School.
