Students walked through Main Street in Middletown keeping an eye out for safety signs and other factual information such as hours of operation, open vs. closed, and cross-walks. We even met the Police Chief!
We went to eat at the Athenia Diner. Students budgeted money and ordered their own food. They paid at the end.
We were supposed to do a hike today. However, due to rain, we decided to relax and watch movies.
Students went to Scott Farm, place where a classmate and his dad work, they helped do misc jobs and walked around farm. They had a picnic lunch. After the farm they went to Middletown Stop and Shop for some grocery shopping. It turned out to be a great weather day!
We met with Strive today at Shift. Everyone loved the music and worked very hard on their spinning.
Students went to clean and help out at the Saybrook of Haddam. They then went to Youth and Family Services and the library.
Students worked at Halfingers Farm filling trays and pots. They then had a hearty lunch at Dinos. Students ordered their own food and paid for their meals. Great day for the day before spring break.
Students went to Saybrook at Haddam to volunteer. They helped set up the dining room and clean.
Students went to the library to exchange books and pick out new ones. They also picked out a movie to watch later today. Students then went to Wesleyan University for lunch and had to maneuver through all the lunch lines and speak loudly and clearly. They watched a movie upon return. Great day!
Today we volunteered at Halfingers Farm and loaded about 1,000 pots into containers! We then went to the Haddam Senior Center and did a fun activity painting Easter Eggs with the seniors. What a great day in the Higganum/Haddam Community.
Students joined friends from another 18-21 program at Shift Cycling in Guilford. They loved it. They all put forth a ton of effort on the bike while listening to inspiring music. They finished off with yoga. It was great.
