Washington, CT - At The Glenholme School, Valentine's Day is always celebrated in style! On the afternoon of Tuesday, February 14, students attended the Cupid Shuffle in the Dining Hall, where they enjoyed tasty snacks, played Musical Hearts and Limbo, ran the Licorice Race, and learned to dance the Cupid Shuffle. Thanks to the efforts of DJs Elias and Patrick, the crowd stayed on their feet and moving for the entire event. Later in the evening, the Dining Hall came to life again for the annual Valentine's Day Social, where students dressed their best and danced the night away to music mixed by DJ Spencer - pausing only to enjoy some delicious cookies, hot appetizers, and punch.

Events such as the Cupid Shuffle and the Valentine's Day Social are vital to the social and emotional learning of students with special needs. Students practice initiating and maintaining conversations, interpreting body language, and trying new things... all while having fun! Regularly scheduled to occur throughout the year, these social events foster a positive, supportive environment, strengthen friendships, and create a sense of school spirit and community.

The Glenholme School is a therapeutic boarding school for young people diagnosed with Asperger's, ADHD, PDD, OCD, Tourette's, depression, anxiety and variouslearning differences. The program provides a treatment milieu designed to build competence socially and academically.
