Just before the holiday, ECLC students celebrated their annual Thanksgiving feast together at lunchtime. The SKIL students and staff work diligently to prepare this traditional, delicious meal for everyone. SKIL means Seeking Knowledge for Independent Living, and in the program, students learn how to manage mailings, collate newsletters, create custom invitations, T-shirts, mugs and menus, and they even run the school lunch program. Thanks to SKIL, we (well, not me) enjoyed a turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, green beans, whole wheat bread and gravy. Families from each classroom sent in desserts and drinks to share.
I am thankful that I am a facility dog at ECLC.
