Timely, Helpful Resources. 

Recipes. Mealtime. Encouragement. 

Here at The Quaker School at Horsham, food is not only about caring and connection, but also about helping children flourish. Our students face social and academic learning challenges, and there is a growing body of knowledge that autism, ADHD and other neurodevelopmental disorders often coexist with food allergies or sensitivities. 

We invite you to browse our Healthy Meals & Shining Moments cookbook to find healthy recipes that you can enjoy cooking with your children.  A mix of vegetarian, allergen-free, gluten-free and casein-free recipes are included. Enjoy!

Plan a Positive Week

At TQS we believe that every child with complex challenges can blossom and achieve meaningful personal, social and academic success -- especially those outside of our TQS walls. In support of this belief, we have created a resource guide for parents, grandparents and other caregivers, Shine Together Every Day: How to Plan a Positive Week for Children with Complex Challenges.

The resource guide includes techniques on how to encourage with praise, engage your child in physical activity, bring joy and laughter to the day and how to reflect with gratitude. A checklist is also included to help you and your child plan a positive week.

Health and Safety Guidance for Opening School in September

As has been the case since the beginning of the pandemic, our focus is on operating safely and in the best interests of our students, families, and staff, so our planning is being informed, as always, by the recommendations of the Montgomery County Office of Public Health.  Earlier this week the agency issued its guidance on COVID-19 prevention for K-12 schools.  If future guidance is issued, TQS will adjust accordingly.  Much of the guidance is linked to four community transmission levels which measure the prevalence of positive COVID cases at the county level at any given time.

Hopefulness at TQS

Here at TQS, the summer sun brings with it our Summer Program, which is now joyfully underway. Children are here learning, studying, laughing, running, swimming, and playing together. There is glee in the hallways and on the playing fields, and a lightness in the building that brings me great satisfaction and happiness. 

The rising sun also signifies a new day … a refresh … a starting over. And boy does that feel appropriate this summer.
