Hello! Just a few quick updates:
Circles: We started the Circles Curriculum today – which is a social boundaries curriculum that teaches the appropriate social interactions between students and various family or community members. Most students are familiar with this concept as Level 1 is taught in Ms. True’s room and we continue with Level 2. Today we discussed the six circles (self, close family, close friends, acquaintances, community helpers and strangers) and appropriate interactions with each. We will be discussing appropriate talk and touch within each group (ex: hug or handshake), and we will discuss what to do if someone touches them inappropriately. Everything is rated “PG”. We will also be talking about Social Media and Internet safety at this time. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call.
Prom: I just received word that the prom for students with special needs will be held on June 8 from 6-9:30 p.m. at Byblos Banquet Hall on Chase in Dearborn. I will pass along information as I receive it. This event is sponsored by the Fordson High School Interact Club.
