We have gotten back into the swing of things since the Winter Holiday break. At the Growing Place we have been getting the Greenhouse and Cottage reorganized after the big Holiday sale in December. We have to get everything ready so the Greenhouse will be set up when the seeds and bulbs arrive for the plants. In the Cottage we put away decorations and did some deep cleaning as well as cook yummy food: pancakes and sausage, appetizers (wings, fries, and cheese sticks), and quesadillas.
We had our district wide Special Olympics Bowling event at Oak Mountain Lanes. Everyone did well and then we enjoyed lunch at Zaxby’s. We also had another round on Community Based Instruction. We helped clean many rooms at the church, had lunch at Jack’s, and enjoyed a nice afternoon at the park.
In class this month we discussed various habitats, animal adaptations, made Borax crystals, and investigated ice orbs. We discussed the Inauguration, Martin Luther King Jr., and the Lunar (“Chinese”) New Year. We also did a lot of practice with money and writing about various topics. We passed our 100th day of school and now will count down until our last day.
We ended the month with a special breakfast with our Peer Pals, Honor Roll party, and Pep Rally to cheer on all of the Winter and Spring Sports.
Upcoming in February: Prom (Feb. 16), Helena Community Based Instruction (TBD), Late Start (Feb. 8), NO SCHOOL (Feb. 20)
