Our new sensory room!
March 24, 2017
We very much enjoyed seeing so many parents and their children attending student-led and parent-teacher conferences yesterday! Our students have been working hard to showcase their skills and knowledge for you and our teachers and staff have put a lot of time into making this an enjoyable learning experience for you.
We are excited to announce that our new sensory room is almost complete! It is located in a small room across the hall from the office. We have already had many students and groups of students using this space for self-regulation, calming and mindfulness. It includes a bubble tube, fibre optic strands, vibrasonic bench, colorful orbs, star projector, DVD projector and wifi connection for most digital devices so we can project sensory apps on the wall. We also have various sensory items such as weighted blankets, a vibrating pillow and various seating options. We are just waiting for a black light to make it really awesome! If you haven’t had a chance to have a look, please stop by the office anytime and ask for a tour. It’s pretty cool!
Right after Spring Break, Mr. V. will have the ever popular Mission Impossible set up in the gym! Students, you can prepare for this challenge by getting outside over the spring break and playing on playground equipment and in nature. Fresh air and exercise are important for a healthy you!
I wish everyone an awesome break to recharge and reconnect with your family. See you on April 3rd!
