Over the past week, we've had lots of holiday fun at all our Sierra Antioch sites! From ice skating, to door decorating contests, and making holiday treats, our students have really enjoyed the winter season. Sierra Kimball made gingerbread houses and earned a trip to the ice skating ring! Sierra Fremont and Sierra Diablo Vista competed against each other in a door decorating contest! And all our sites made goodies from ornaments to holiday cookies. We want to thank our staff and parents for making it such a great holiday season for all our students! [...]
Our elementary students at our Kimball and Diablo Vista campuses joined together on a visit to the Smith Family Farm. While there they were able to participate in the corn maze, learn about local produce, ride on a hay wagon, and pick their own pumpkin! They were also able to spend the day playing barn yard games and ended the trip with a class picnic! This fun field trip allowed for socialization of our two elementary campuses as well as the opportunity to experience their community.
All our campuses took part in various Halloween activities. Our students at Sierra – Diablo Vista were able to enjoy pumpkin carving and a costume contest to ring in the festivities.

Our high school classroom was able to attend a transition fair that focused on life after high school for students with learning disabilities. They provided students with information on housing, the local community, furthering their education, and legal and institutional booths were displayed. This was very informative to our high school students as many of them are getting closer to this transition stage. Afterward we were able to go spend time have lunch In & Out and debrief on what we have learned and future goals.
In a goal to reach our community, we invite programs such as Working Wonders to come in and work with our students. Working Wonders is a program that serves disabled adults within our community by giving them opportunities to volunteer and expand their skills. When volunteering in our classrooms, they help with many different tasks and activities. Not only do they help with getting school lunches and handing out academic work, but they also enjoy engaging students in fun activities such as art and P.E. Moving forward we want to continue to support our community's programs by inviting them [...]
