‘Growth’ pays visit to Schlicker Elementary

LAPEER — Several adults with special needs from Growth & Opportunity Inc., in Lapeer, paid a visit to Schickler Elementary on Nov. 15. During their stay, 5th grade LINKS students read with them and also received a hands-on lesson in the use of Braille. Chris, one of three G & O adults who actually went to Schickler as a child, read to the students from a book in Braille and also showed them how to type using a Braille machine that is used in their literacy project.

The group also led the students through a couple practice runs using American Sign Language to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

Robert Schlund, husband of Laree Schlund, a teacher at Schickler, is a co-administrator at G & O.
