Spring Open House at Red Mill Elementary

Monday, March 6th, 3-4:30 p.m.

Pre-school staff, district CSE’s and prospective parents are invited to visit our program, meet our team and learn about the services we offer to local students with multiple disabilities.

This is your opportunity to talk with the classroom teacher, members of our related service team and a parent of a child currently in our program.

Our primary school-aged (Grades K-2) self-contained program is based at Red Mill Elementary School. The staff at Red Mill provide a warm, welcoming environment for our students. We are so pleased to be a part of this award winning, “Blue Ribbon” school.

Our structured environment provides students with the individual, specialized support needed to be successful. Our focus is to provide a multi-sensory, team approach to learning, in a supportive and therapeutic environment. We utilize total communication (including sign language, PECs, and AAC devices) throughout the day, in all settings. Further we strive as a team to make each student as independent as possible while they develop the skills they will need to move forward in their education.
