In Tammy's high school class we are super busy with lots of fun activities.  On Monday and Tuesday afternoons we have vocational groups.  On Friday afternoons we have choice groups.  This means that the students are re-grouped  with the other high school and transition classes into 4 groups.  During vocational groups the students work in the JOFA program (Job Opportunities For All) for one 9 week period during the school year with our vocational Facilitator, Jim Ross.  When they are not in the JOFA program students work on job skills with different teachers each day. Choice groups involve  4 different activities and the students choose the one they prefer, the groups are held at the end of the day and the kids participate in the group they chose.  We go on mobility trips into the community once a month, the students all enjoy going out.  Our curriculum unit for February focuses on leaders who promoted peace and equality for all people.  We had a fun turnabout dance with all the high school classes Friday 2/12. The girls were able to ask the boys to dance (equality in action), we shared valentines with our friends, had some yummy snacks and everyone had a great time.
