HAPPENINGS
David Murphy, grade 9, and Christian Lemelin, grade 10, are enrolled in a work training program at
Portland High
School’s cafeteria. Students are learning valuable skills and learning how to interact with
non-signing staff members.
Welcome to our
classroom!

Our students enjoy typing their morning minutes work on their iPads and displaying their work on
the large screen via the Apple TV. It is really an impressive sight to see!

Thursdays our new OT, Courtney Machado, works with students on fine motor tasks. Here a student
is making a crescent pizza roll.  By the way-our classroom is now equipped with a working kitchen
which we enjoy using.
