• Within the Life Skills Program at the Elementary School, the focus is on teaching the basic skills needed to complete activities of daily living, pre-vocational tasks, and community based skills.  During weekly groups, the students have the opportunity to practice a wide variety of functional skills including hygiene skills, simple purchases, school jobs, group activities, as well as learning to safely navigate all environments in and outside of school.  Along with attending groups, many students have started school jobs in which they are responsible for delivering lunch menus, stocking the supply cabinets, shredding, recycling, and cleaning areas throughout the school. The students are motivated to participate and earn "school money" that they can spend in our newly developed school store.
