February Recap

We had a very full February in Miss Amanda's class! There was so much to pack into this short month! Here are the highlights:

Pizza Making 

Miss Cheryl generously allowed us to make our own personal pizzas! They were delicious! 






SRC Olympics 

Our February sports unit also aligned well with the 2014 Winter Olympics! Together with Miss Ashlee's class, we participated in three events: luge, ice skating, and ice hockey (modified a bit). It was a fantastic day! Once we participated in all three events, we won medals and were able to stand on our podium for a victory photograph!

OGA Field Trip


This month we went to the Oregon Gymnastics Academy. Along with Miss Ashlee's class, we learned about how exercise keeps us healthy and how to be a good sport. A big thanks to OGA for putting together a structured and fun gymnastics experience!

January Recap

January was full of fun activities! Here are the highlights:

Violins 

Mr. Davis, our music teacher, introduced our students to Violins. Not only were we able to hold them, but we were able to PLAY them! It was such an exciting time! 











Polar Bear Bites 

Another Miss Cheryl cooking adventure! 











December Recap

We had a wonderful December in Miss Amanda's class! Here are some highlights:

Evergreen Delights

Every month Miss Cheryl creates amazing cooking opportunities for students in the Upper SRC. This month we cooked Evergreen Delights. Students are involved in each step of the cooking process. 








Holiday Decorations 

The holiday season can be an overwhelming time of the year for students on the autism spectrum. Here in the SRC we prepare students for the different scenarios they might encounter at home and out in the community. 




Dollar Tree Field Trip

Together with Miss Ashlee's class, we rode the city Trimet bus to the Dollar Tree! We were able to pick out two gifts. Everyone did a fantastic job! 






Giving Gifts 

This holiday season, the students in the Upper SRC made gifts for students in Miss Ashlee's class. We made the gifts, wrapped them, then practiced exchanging presents!
