TGIM - Thank Goodness It’s Monday: Every Monday parents are invited to join us with our welcoming rituals. It is a perfect time for parents, teachers, therapists, administrative staff and students to spend time together in camaraderie. Refreshments are served and the school day is ready to begin after our “Pledge of Allegiance” to our flag, singing the “Star Spangled Banner,” and other songs.
We need your help! We are asking all parents to be assigned to one or 2 Mondays for the year and we ask that you bring a light breakfast such as doughnuts, bakery items, fruit or bagels for the staff and parents to share on Monday mornings.  One staff member will be accompanying you to help with this donation. Please call us to sign up for a TGIM!
