Good Morning folks,
Every year we work with Vaughn Occupation High School in Chicago to help raise money for seniors to take a trip to Washington D.C. Vaughn is a CPS with 100% of the students with disabilities. Kevin and I both hope to have our son John attend Vaughn in 2019. Vaughn offers a rigorous, future-focused program for students with Intellectual Disabilities. It teaches academics along with crucial life, occupational, and social skills through differentiated, hands-on, technology-rich instruction combined with frequent community-based learning.
The D.C. trip is a really exciting experience for the kids. It is offered to senior students to develop valuable independent functioning and social skills while learning about our country's history and government.
Without your help and support, these students would not be able to afford the full cost of the trip, and would, therefore, be denied this amazing experience. I've seen the amazing social/emotional and academic benefits of this trip firsthand. Students return more confident in their own skills and knowledge and with a greater sense of civic pride.
Please consider donating to Vaughn this year-end by clicking on the link below. The donation is tax deductible. In addition, please share this with your network. Every little bit helps.
Thank you and a very Happy Holiday to you,
