Mrs. Amber's high schoolers in room 104 are participating in a community wide activity, from the comfort of our school campus. We have designed and labeled Sweet Buffalo Rocks!

Students chose their colors & designs, and the message they wish to put out into the world. We hope when people find our rocks, that they will feel love, peace and healing in some small way. Some rocks are hidden near our campus, and the teacher will also hide some a bit farther from town.
Yes, one student even hid his under the flagpole, and another.... on the fire hydrant! haha.
If you find one of our rocks, please take a picture and post it online!

We also continue to care for our school garden with great care, each sunny day.
Way to go, room 104!

Greetings ARC family. Well summer is off to an amazing start at our Maryvale site.
Mrs. Amber's high school Garden club, continues to put tons of love and hard work into maintaining our gardens. Most of the plants were started from seed back in the Spring, and look at us now! We have begun to harvest basil this week, and we made tasty pesto in class. Keep up the great work, everyone!
A huge thank you to my dedicated classroom staff, and our facilities department, Bill and Carlos, for all their support and hard work with our garden experience!

May is designated as Better Hearing and Speech Month while May 18th is National Speech-Language Pathologist Day. The Arc Erie County Education Program would like to thank our speech department for all the hard work that they do every day with our students. Speech therapists not only assist students with improving their overall communication skills through language and articulation therapy, but they also work on improving speech fluency, oral motor skills, social skills, feeding/swallowing, and use of Augmentative and Alternative forms of communication (AAC). Thank you to all our speech therapists. SLPs- changing the world one word at a time!

The Arc Erie County Preschool and School Age Programs provide educational and therapy services to students with disabilities throughout Buffalo and the surrounding areas. The devastating occurrence that happened to our city on Saturday has been a big blow to all of us, especially those in the East side community. To think that such violence and hatred could touch such a wonderful community is heartbreaking. All of us here at our school programs are sending our condolences, love and support to all of those immediately affected by this tragedy. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if there is any way that we can help to ease some of the pain or hardships you might be going through in the upcoming days. We will all be sure to take extra care of your kiddos, hug your them extra tight, and provide a safe and positive space for them during the school day even though our world may be a scary place. We are Buffalo. We are strong. We will get through this together.

April is National Occupational Therapy Month; The Arc Erie County Education Program would like to thank our dedicated Occupational Therapists. Occupational Therapists work on a variety of skills to help our students achieve in their school environment. OTs use unique, engaging activities to allow the students to work on skills including fine motor, sensory processing, visual motor, pre-vocational and vocational tasks, and self-help skills. Often sessions include puzzles and games to address these skills in a fun and meaningful way for the students they are working with. Our OTs are very creative and can make any activity engaging and fun. Thank you, OTs, for everything you do to help our students thrive! 💕

Mani's rain deer.
Mani's snowman.
Mani's santa on a stick she is gveing to her daddy.
you tuck the silver wear inside the napkin.
you put the silver wear tucked under the napkin.
Mani,is feeling better this is her picture of jack-jack.
This is the chart we use for homeschooling.yesterday,and today Mani hasn't had school because she is sick.she will make up the work when she gets well.Thank you.
For mani's music lesson we do kids worship songs and we add the beats with what we have.the words that they use are uplifting freeing her soul.i don't let her listen to music that keeps her down.like humpty dumpty.she doesn't listen to it because it is teaching kids that if you are broken or you have things happen you will stay broken.in that song they say humpty dumpty can't be put back together.and her christain music teach's her when the world or people in the world hurt you GOD can put you back together.
Mani uses this for math.she likes it.
