Summer 2006 Newsletter

The School is Scheduled to Open
September 5, 2006

First Day of School
We are pleased and excited to announce the opening of the Louis Braille School. On September 5, 2006, at 8:50 in the morning, the School’s first students will begin an adventure of learning, sharing, and growing.

The Program

Our program is holistic in nature and includes academics, emotional and social growth, and daily living skills that foster independence. We consider each childss strengths and challenges and develop an individualized program that suits his or her needs.

The Staff

A small student body allows our excellent staff to provide one-on-one and small group attention throughout the day. Lead teacher Andre Middleton exudes a winning combination of warmth, patience, and kind firmness that is hard to resist.

Paraprofessional Beckie Postlewait has many years experience with children who have special challenges. “I really love working with the kiddos and seeing them change and grow,” Beckie said.

Equipment

Available for the students are books, educational toys and games, computers, musical instruments, tactile maps, and most important, a friendly, supportive environment in which to discover the joys of learning.
