  • EPEC 308 October Meeting & Parents as Advocates Workshop

    Posted by Mary Geraghty at 10/3/2016

    Greetings Parents and Guardians,

    As parents, we know how challenging it can be to guide and coach our children along the way, especially during the various hormonal stages in difficult early teens or navigating them through the tough stages of development.

    As a father of a Jr. High 6th grade special needs daughter, I must admit, sometimes I feel clueless as to how to help her even though deep inside I'm scrambling for ways to find hope to address her pain. Well, we here at School District 308 EPEC board of Special Education PTO group have met and brainstormed to put together a solid team of Key Note speakers to arm us as parents with various tools we need to guide our child with special needs.

    We invite you, moms and dads, to join us this school year for some parent resources from these speakers who will travel into our district to Empower, Engage and Employ us as parents of a special needs child through their academic journey this 2016/2017 school year.

  • Plank Jr. High Students Have Cultural Experience

    Posted by Mary Geraghty at 1/7/2016

    Students in the Instructional Skills Program at Plank Jr. High went to see a play. They saw a " Christmas Carol" at Drury Lane on Dec. 15th. Afterwards they went to McDonald's where the students were expected to order and pay for their own food. This real life community exposure allows our special education students to practice important skills. The students were extremely excited and enthusiastic about a day out in the community.
