SHOW 4 – SACC.TV “Crossroads Center for Children”

Integrated Preschool Program

Getting Ready for the Gala


Show 4 was recorded on 3/23, and was organized into 2 halves. In the first half, we discussed the benefits of integrated classrooms, both for our students with special developmental needs, as well as for those without. Thanks to Melissa Cleinman, Director of Education, Shavonne Sanders, Health Office Coordinator, and Kristen Lawler, all of whom had children in our integrated preschool program in the past. The second half was a chance to talk about our Gala, which is coming up on 4/29, and we were able to hear from Rachel Frederick, Teaching Assistant and Gala Committeeperson, and D.J. Zac Barr, our dedicated Gala D.J. Thanks too, to Kelly Young, Executive Director, for providing insight for both topics and to Vicki Ramotar, Resource Development, for moderating.

We remain thankful to Randall and Randy Hogue of SACC.TV for all they do to bring our message to a needing community.

In preparation for Giving Tuesday & NY Gives Day, http://crossroadcenter.org/giving-tuesday-16-2/ yesterday we had our first recording for our first “episode” of a show with SACC.TV! This is a wonderful opportunity to spread our message and increase visibility of who we are and what we do! SACC.TV is helping us to produce a series of 5 (hopefully) “episodes” altogether.

A huge thank you to the following panel members for their courage and passion at yesterday’s taping:

Cindy Barkowski, Wendy Whitman, Kelly Young, Melissa Cleinman, Steve Oill, Jean Churchill, Kathleen Galvin-Davis, and Vicki Ramotar.

Marshall & Sterling, Scotia, https://www.marshallsterling.com/ was amazing to sponsor us and we are incredibly thankful! Matt Norton and Rob Cassella was so quick to say yes when we asked them to sponsor our very first episode! We would not be able to undertake this project without them.

Randall Hogue and his son Randy at SACC.TV http://www.sacc.tv are super wonderful to work with, and their guidance and encouragement with putting it all together was fantastic.
