Emergence Program Delivers Care Packs for our Troops

On Friday, students from the Emergence Program visited the Care Packs Inc. Warehouse in Weymouth, MA. Thanks to the generosity of Higashi students and families, we were able to donate a wide variety of hygiene and leisure items to be sent to troops serving overseas. Emergence students worked hard to compose Thank You letters during their November academic unit using picture symbols, visual topic boards, and augmentative communication devices. These letters not only gave students a greater awareness of community involvement, but also brought a message from home to their recipients. Great job, EP!
