Happy Thanksgiving!

This week’s Team Time was a great time for us to talk about what we are thankful for!

We read two books about being thankful, and the children were eager to share what they are thankful for!

I am so thankful for all of the the Fuller Meadow staff and families that I work with each and every day!  On behalf of the Fuller Meadow School staff, we wish you a very happy, joyous Thanksgiving.


Tasty Tuesday

Our students experienced their first Tasty Tuesday of the school year yesterday!  They tried zucchini, and while there were some mixed reviews, those who loved it went back for seconds and thirds!  Check out the pictures below of some excited Kindergarten students eating zucchini on their first Tasty Tuesday!

Pictures with Santa!

On Sunday December 6, 2015 from 8:30-10AM there will be special picture times with Santa for children with special needs at the Northshore Mall, lower level by Nordstroms. The Mall is not open to the public at this time to provide a less stressful environment for children. For $10 you may preregister for a time so you will not need to wait in line, the $10 will be applied to picture packages. If no times are available, you may walk in; all children will be able to see Santa! This special opportunity is sponsored by Simon Malls, Autism Speaks and AbilityPath.org.  To register for this special event, go to:  simon.com/caringsanta

Check out our Islands of Competence!

Each Fuller Meadow family member created their own Island of Competence.  They are lining the hallway near our library and gymnasium. An Island of Competence is an area of our lives in which we are proud of, or that we are good at.  Dr. Bob Brooks (http://www.drrobertbrooks.com/) says, “If there is an ocean of inadequacy, then there must be islands of competence—areas that have been or have the potential to be sources of pride and accomplishment.  Check out our Islands of Competence the next time you visit Fuller Meadow School!
