Back to School Open House
P.188X kicks off the school year with a big welcome to all of our families. All sites host an open house morning in celebration of the new school year: sharing with parents our exciting atmosphere of learning. Coffee and donuts are served as our Principal, Shanie J. Smith-Baugh, welcomes our valued parents. Administration, Coordinators, Nurses, and Related Services Providers are introduced. Parents are then given the opportunity to visit their child’s classroom and meet the teachers and para-professionals. Classroom policies/procedures and expectations for the year are discussed. This wonderful opportunity allows parents and teachers time to discuss home enrichment ideas to support classroom learning.
The National Alliance for Autism Research (NAAR) was founded by families concerned about the limited amount of medical research focusing on the cause, prevention, treatment and cure of autism spectrum disorder. They are a non-profit organization committed to funding research with a strong network of talented and dedicated volunteers and supports.
Each year our administration, staff, parents and students join together as Team P. 188X to participate in the Walk F.A.R. for N.A.A.R. each year. P. 188X is very proud to be part of this wonderful event and look forward to many walks in the future.
