Clarke Alum Gives Back at Alumni Night


April 26, 2012—On March 13, Clarke PA welcomed back former students and their parents for Alumni Night. The event featured a panel presentation led by alumni families and a question and answer session for current Clarke parents.

During the panel session, Clarke Alum Max Devon, son of Steering Committee members Ronit and Michael Devon, presented Clarke Educational Support Specialist, Sherri Fickenscher, with a special gift: a set of music-themed activity boxes for Early Intervention families. Each box is filled with instruments, toys, and books designed to help families create a home environment rich with sound and language. Max raised the money to create the boxes himself and assembled them with care. Along with this wonderful gift, Max donated the funds left over from the project to Clarke. We are truly grateful to Max and his family for thinking of and supporting Clarke families!
