Students in Madera High School’s Social Skills Autism class recently presented Fresno-based homebuilder McCaffrey Homes with a large mosaic for donating $3,000 to support classroom programs.

The mosaic, a replica of the McCaffrey Homes logo, was made by the students. It will be displayed in a new McCaffrey model home center being built at Riverstone, a master-planned community in southeast Madera County.

“All of us at McCaffrey Homes are truly touched by the gift of this mosaic,” said Robert McCaffrey, chief executive officer. “It’s been an honor to get to know these exceptional students and a privilege to contribute to the important work of the social skills program. The hard work and dedication of the students and everyone involved made an indelible impression on us.”

The money helped students rehabilitate an abandoned area on campus into a garden with paved walkways, a fountain, raised vegetable beds and seating areas.

“Through this garden, the students have learned valuable skills such as garden design, landscaping, sprinkler installation and mosaic design,” said teacher Lalo Sanchez. “This garden has truly been an outdoor classroom. The donation will also be used to award college scholarship funds to seniors in the social skills class.”

McCaffrey was chosen as the first builder at Riverstone, a 2,000-acre development on the west side of Highway 41 and north and south of Avenue 12. The builder will debut two new collections of homes that are expected to be ready this fall.
