My Students

Our school is for students with special needs who, because of severe emotional and behavioral issues, have not been able to learn successfully at their regular schools. They learn a little bit differently, are a little more difficult to engage due to their tremendous emotional needs, and we work hard to be able to accommodate their differences, correct their behaviors with gentle guidance, and keep them in school and in class!

Our school provides a safe place where students can make mistakes, learn coping skills, and master problem-solving strategies while continuing to be exposed to the district-wide academic curriculum.

Instead of being suspended or removed from the learning environment for extended parts of the day - which is what was happening in their regular schools- our daily goal is to keep students in the learning environment where they can get their academic needs met. The ultimate goal is to give them the coping strategies they need to be able to be successful back at their home schools. In the meantime, we strive to give them the kind of high-quality lessons and activities that will authentically engage them in rigorous learning.

My Project

Our students love P.E., love going outdoors and love to play games and are going to have a great time learning how to swing a racquet and hit a birdie. This complete badminton set will provide a level playing field for all of us as we learn a game that is new to us!

This badminton set is going to introduce most of them to a game they have never before played!

This will be an opportunity to expand the sporting horizons of our students beyond the typical past football and basketball games that are played most of the time.

It will be a wonderful way to get some exercise and work on some of those motor skills and hand-eye coordination as we “watch the birdie!”
