Washington, CT - The occasional crisp chill and the beautiful golds and reds of the fall foliage are Mother Nature’s signs that the new school year is in full swing. With the change to autumn, Glenholme officially kicks off the new academic year with its traditional Fall Festival, which celebrates the transition from the summer education environment to the rigors of the regular school routine.

The warm autumn Thursday afternoon of October 7 was ideal for the carnival event. Excited students packed the activity booths for jousting fun, obstacle course excitement, the pitching speed cage challenge, and balloon popping pleasure. Face painting, jewelry making, an oatmeal prize dig, and great guessing games created more merriment. The traditional treats of snow cones and popcorn along with an assortment of prizes rounded out the festival fun for everyone.

Every year, students and staff await the excitement of the Fall Festival. With our fall festival success, we look to the achievement that awaits us in the new school year.

The Glenholme School, a Devereux Center, is an exceptional boarding school for students with special needs, which offers an individually prescribed learning environment with a steadfast academic curriculum. Using our effective individualized services, we apply a positive behavior support model focused on development of social skills and lifelong strategies for success. The school’s milieu therapy addresses varying levels of academic, social and special needs development in boys and girls ages 10-18 and postgraduates. We prepare graduates for continued education in traditional day schools, boarding schools, colleges and universities.
