FRIENDS FOR ALL
We are continuing our Friends For All program at Shue-Medill Middle School!
The goal of FFA is to create and support friendships between students with and without disabilities.
We will be holding group meetings twice a month during the school day, alternating between Enrichment and Block 1/2 classes for about 45 minutes. At group meetings, buddies and their peers play games, crafts, puzzles, and do other fun activities together. In addition, peer buddies are encouraged to have lunch with their buddies at least twice a month.
If your student is interested in being placed with a buddy, and willing to make the above commitment, please complete the application attached, and return to room 148, or Ms. Diane in the Main Office.
Please contact me if you have any questions.

Одна и та же картинка смотрела на него со всех двенадцати мониторов наподобие какого-то извращенного балета. Вцепившись руками в спинку стула, Бринкерхофф в ужасе смотрел на экраны. - Чед? - услышал он голос у себя за спиной. Обернувшись, Бринкерхофф начал всматриваться в темноту. Мидж как ни чем не бывало стояла в приемной возле двойной двери директорского кабинета и протягивала к нему руку ладонью вверх.
