Christopher is a student in Tasha Lewis’ class.  He writes by using a tool called, a braille notebook. This is like a computer without the monitor.  He is able to write not just words of sentences, but full papers and stories.  It also allows him to save his work so that if needs be he can come back to it.

Field trips are always fun!  Recently Oakridge went on a field trip to BYU where some of the students were able to swim with BYU students while others had open gym time and one on one time with a BYU student.  These BYU students participate in a program called “Gym Kids”.  This is a great opportunity for the students to be social, play, and just be themselves.

Gym time is loved by all students.  It gives the students, technicians, and teachers time out of the classroom.  It also helps everyone get their wiggles out!  Recently Oakridge was able to use one of the gyms at Springville High School, where there was plenty of room to play volleyball and play with the parachute.
