What's Happening

We are preparing for another Community Based Learning day. Thursday, February 25th we will learn to use public transportation, work on our restaurant skills and planning, shopping and preparing a meal. Details will be coming home soon with a permission slip.

We have been working on information about ourselves. We are working on our address, phone number and parents actual names, not mom and dad. We have looked at google maps and found our houses, created and mailed letters to ourselves, practiced writing, saying and dialing our phone numbers and created our own cell phones to practice making phone calls.
