Hello Lake Shore Families!
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I hope you all have enjoyed your Summer! I am honored to be your child's teacher this year in the Life Skills Program. We are very fortunate to have Miss Dawn Murphy as our Teaching Assistant. Our classroom is now located back in the West wing of the High School in Room 119. There will be a welcome letter sent with information for the beginning of the new school year. Please note that my email has been changed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Life Skills Program is using the Unique Learning System as the classroom curriculum. The curriculum program has been designed specifically for children with special learning needs. While the foundation of Unique is the content standards (Reading, Writing, Math, and Science/ Social Studies), the lessons are modified to make sure that all children have a way to participate and learn. There is a strong emphasis on Lifeskills that are embedded in each lesson. Unique Learning System has a High School/ Transition Grade Band with Instructional Targets which are as follows:
- Daily Living
- Community Living
- Personal Life
- Lifelong Learning
I will be sending home a monthly newsletter to keep you informed on our lessons and activities throughout the year. It will also be posted on my website as well.
Please feel free to call or email me if you ever have any questions or concerns throughout the year and I will be happy to get back to you as soon as possible.
I'm looking forward to a wonderful year in the Life Skills program!
Mrs. Maureen Reichert and Miss Dawn Murphy
