November is Native American Heritage Month, and administrators bedecked their doors with images and information reminding all of us of the importance of recognizing the contributions and sacrifices made by those who lived on this land long before settlers from Europe arrived.  Influences on culture, tradition, and language, and acknowledgement of important leaders in American tribes, were among the topics showcased.

Visit from Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission

2021-11-18T10:52:44-05:00November 10, 2021|

We were pleased to host a visit by Yvonne Tylinski, M.S., C.R.C., a Vocational Counselor with the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission, on Monday, November 8th.  Here, our Educational Coordinator, Kim Phillips, introduces Yvonne to a group of our juniors and seniors who were presented with information about the pre-ETS (Employment Transition Services) program which is offered to young adults as they prepare for adulthood.  MRC works with many community providers to offer transition services for students designed to provide them with the skills needed to be successful with employment or further education after high school.  The broad range of services the agency offers for both students and adults, in partnership with schools, families, and other state agencies, focuses on the importance of self-advocacy and helping people live more independently.
