Special Education School Cuts Ribbon On Media Room

Local Attorney Donates To Special Education Unit

Thanks to local defense counsel Joseph Mure, dozens of kids at PS 256 @ 831, located at 445 Beach 135 Street, now have a reason to behave and to do better in their studies.

On Monday, Mure and some of those who helped him make the media center a reality came to the school for a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The school is a District 75 program for students with disabilities, including students with autism and emotional disabilities.

As one student declared, the new space is enough to make you say “Wow, cool!” This Media Room will be utilized for a Positive Behavior Reward system, as well as to reinforce learning goals and objectives.

Also, this technology will allow the school to utilize various educational programs to supplement in-struction for their students with autism.

Principal Oswaldo Roman and Assistant Principal Kris Melbourne, as well as the students and staff thanked Mure and his friends for their generosity in time, materials and equipment.

According to Roman, many community members were involved in the process of designing and developing the space: Robert Dyer, Elite Woodworking, John Fiasano, Anthony Gallo, Brian McCloud, Metropolitan Lighting, Michael Mure, NYFAC, Val Pompero, Mark Shor, Sal Sodano and Wolf Garden Company.
