  • This Month's Activities

    Hello! Please check off all the events for which you would like to join us 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 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.
    Come hungry—we will gather with our friends for lunch, then head over to the apartment complex playground for some afternoon walking and playing. Then, we will come back to the conference room for snack. If it rains, we will show an in-house movie.

    We can’t call it camp, but our summer fun days return! Today, we plan a Water Play Day outside—so wear your bathing suit and get ready for action! A summer-themed art project, conversation, Legos, games, construction toys, and more will fill our day. All children should come dressed in their bathing suit and a cover-up, with sunscreen applied. Please bring a labeled backpack with a hat and/or sunglasses, a towel, a complete change of clothes, a peanut and tree-nut free bag lunch and a light sweater in case the air-conditioning feels cold after water play. If the weather is bad, we will plan inside fun, including a cooking project.

    When: TBA (about 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.)
    Where: Panera Bread and the Sparta Theatre, 25 Centre St., Sparta NJ 07870
    Meet us at the Budd Lake office conference room, and then we will transport to Oxford Furnace Lake in Warren County. We will play in the lake and then enjoy a picnic lunch in the shaded grove. After another hour of beach time, we will change into dry clothes, have an ice cream treat, and head back to the conference room. All children should come dressed in their bathing suit and a cover-up, with sunscreen applied. Please bring a labeled backpack with a hat and/or sunglasses if they wish, a beach towel, a complete change of clothes, a beach chair if they like to use one at the beach, and a light sweatshirt in case they feel chilled after swimming, along with a peanut- and tree-nut–free bagged lunch.
