  • This Month's Activities

    Hello! Please check off all the events you would like to join us for this month.
    Parents' Night Out is a site- and community-based program that provides children and teens with events that provide them with the opportunity to interact with their peers. In the meantime, parents and guardians are afforded time for themselves.
      This form is only for families who have already pre-registered with Advancing Opportunities. If you are interested in participating in Parents' Night Out, please contact Jennifer Palmer, at jpalmer@advopps.org.
    You can also reach Jennifer Palmer at the office at, 973-426-1522, ext. 113. During PNO events, she can be reached on the PNO cell, at 973-580-7937.
      Please register as early in the month as possible to allow for staffing arrangements.

    Eat lunch at home, then meet us in the downstairs conference room for a field trip to Fosterfields Living Historical Farm. We have invited the ANO adults as well, so this will be a mixed-age program. We will travel in agency vehicles to the farm, where our tour will include meeting the newest spring piglets. Participants should be comfortable walking on uneven ground—please wear sturdy shoes and dress for the weather, including applying sunscreen if needed. PNO will provide water during the trip and a snack when we return.
