Happy Father’s Day from NSSA!

i Jun 19th No Comments by

Last week was a flurry of activity and craft projects, with both Barell and Adult Services classrooms working on Father’s Day gifts!

Tori put together an “I Spy Aquarium” shaker jar, with colorful sensory beads, glitter and miniature sea animals. Students selected their animals of choice, counted out how many beads they wanted, and selected blue or green glitter to fill their jars with. The sensory beads were a big hit with students and staff alike!

The Adult Services classes made homemade barbecue sauce for Dad.  Clients measured out and mixed the ingredients and then bottled them in jars with a sauce brush and label.

Teachers, families and district personnel have all done a great job in preparing the graduates for their next step at NSSA.

Through job sampling or training, the Adult Services program works to ensure that the adults we serve are able to grow and develop to their maximum potential. Our primary concern for the adults we serve is that they continue to grow to their greatest level of independence through employment and skills required of daily living.

Families were beaming with pride as students accepted their certificates from teachers and school district personnel.

We wish the graduates every success in the next phase of their lives.

Congratulations, graduates!
