Last full week for the 20-21 school year!

What a ride this year has been!   I hope that next school year will be business as usual and that we will be in person every day πŸ™‚ We hope that you have some exciting learning opportunities this summer as adult transition doesn’t stop in the summer.  What keeps me motivated is seeing the change in students as they progress through the years of Connections and I hope all the students moving on have a happy and productive future!

This week we have a full week and the last day of classes will be Thursday June 17th.  This coming Friday, June 11 we will be celebrating our “graduates” with a fun social event to be announced.

All technology needs to be returned to either Churchill HS or the Connections building by Thursday June 17th.

There is a summer job club opportunity being lead by the transition specialists. Please let us know if this is interesting to you.

My name is Johnna Garcia and I’m the Transition Specialist at North. Joshua Gramley, the Transition Specialist from South, and I have been working on getting a job club together for the summer. It was important to us that we make a safe space for our students to come together and have some stability, fun, and get some one on one help with post high school goals.

We want to meet Tuesday and Thursday from 10am-2pm starting on 7/6 and ending on 8/12.  We are hoping to be able to meet at downtown LCC, but that’s still up in the air.
We are looking to spend one day volunteering somewhere or doing something fun like maybe frisbee golf or hiking and one day in the classroom where we would have lunch, meet one on one to work on any post high school goals they have, and meet with a community member via zoom. We are looking for community members who can talk about employment, LCC, and any services our students might need like Voc Rehab, Worksource Oregon, DD services, Social Security, or anything they want to know about.
