A Spook-tacular Day at IEA

IEA’s Annual Halloween Celebration certainly did not disappoint this year! The halls were filled with excitement as students prepared to Trick or Treat throughout the building, with some of our adult learners helping to greet and treat. Following the traditional costume parade outside for parents and siblings, everyone gathered to continue the festivities in the classrooms…younger learners were painting pumpkins, playing games, and enjoying festive treats. Olders students watched Halloween-themed videos, and adult learners danced away to the Monster Mash. Most of all, it was a fang-tastic day with nothing but big smiles when it was time to go home. Until next year…happy haunting!

27th Annual Golf Classic

A chilly and blustery October day did not prevent golfers from enjoying the beautiful Hackensack Golf Club for IEA’s 27th Annual Golf Classic. We had a full field of golfers, all eager and happy to play this challenging course.

Our sincerest thanks to everyone who participated in making this year’s event a huge success, including our golfers, corporate and individual sponsors, and those who donated items for our auctions. All funds raised from this event help IEA provide state-of-the-art intervention to meet the needs of all of the individuals we serve, and empower them with the skills and tools needed to achieve their fullest potential.

We thank Tournament Chairs Chris Comey, Frank Lento, and Frank Salerno, and Committee Members Maria Bushman, Diane Lento, Joanne Novarro, and Joanne Salerno for their dedicatoin and efforts to make this a wonderful day for IEA. We also extend our sincerest gratitude to Norm Forsyth, and the entire Hackensack Golf Club staff for coordinationg another great event for all of our guests.

Summer…time for a BBQ!

IEA celebrated summer with a BBQ for all learners, staff, and families on Friday, August 12th. The sunny day was perfect for the students and their siblings to enjoy some fun activities including face painting, amazing balloon animals, splashing and frolicking under the sprinklers, and, of course, great food! Thanks to Master Griller Dr. Eric Rozenblat, and his expert sous chef, James, a great time was had by all.
