Transition Center News

January 2014

Job Sites

Charlotte thanked everyone for their networking efforts regarding job sites. It was a big success! Staff was able to schedule another day at Red Lobster among other sites and added days. Four of our students will be working at the skill center in the new semester.

Staff should be helping students work on their resumes and interview skills.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

Parents have voiced concerns about not getting enough feedback from their child's school. In an effort to address that, we are holding parent/teacher conferences on February 11 and 13, 2014. A letter will go home to parents informing them of the dates and times.

Senior Box Program

Kim was able to take $200 to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan for their Senior Box Program. This program provides supplemental food boxes to senior citizens each month through annual sponsorship. Thank you to all who participated.

Very Special Arts

An artist from Very Special Arts will be coming to the Transition Center on Fridays to work with students during an eight week course. It will be exciting to see what students create!
