Somerset Berkley Regional High School is hosting a community wide walk to promote Autism awareness and acceptance. The Walk the Walk event (Stepping in the Right Direction Autism) is a two mile open walk around the beautiful new Somerset Berkley Regional High School track in which participants can join in on the track any time.
The entire community is welcome and encouraged to bring your families and friends.
The event will also feature informational booths along with interactivities for participants. All the proceeds of this event will go directly to the students at Somerset’s elementary schools, high school, and junior high.
The money will be used to fund individual projects by the teachers made to strengthen the learning experiences of the students. This could include special sensory equipment, field trips, software, supplies, or any other resources needed.
All of this will take place during the week of World Autism Awareness Day, which takes place on April 2nd.
The superintendent is asking both students and staff along with others in the community to wear blue on April 6th in honor of Autism and the upcoming event the next day. That week will also feature numerous other events at the other schools in Somerset.

Our Rolling Stone Johnny McMahon
January 28th was Positive Synergy's first ever benefit concert and it was a huge success! The event was organized and headlined by our very own behavior technician Johnny McMahon. In the line up along with Johnny were local Providence artists Songs to Drive Cars To and Invisible Hours. Along with generous donations of instruments, wires, and amps, the event raised over $150 to purchase additional instruments. These instruments will provide the basis for our new music program.
If you or a kiddo you know might be interested in further cultivating their own musical passions and have some ideas you would like to see in a music program, please feel free to contact Johnny via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, If any of you have any musical instruments that are sitting around and collecting dust, please feel free to donate them to the program. We are specifically in need of instrument cables and amplifiers but anything would be greatly appreciated. Positive Synergy would like to give a special thank you to all of the folks who were able to show their support, give their time and space, and those who donated. We look forward to having more events like this in the future and until then- keep rockin'!
