April was home to 2 of our very favorite annual activities! We held one of our “Intensives”, our film festival the Europies! Students spend the whole week crafting short films that are then screened and awarded at the end of the week. They work hard, receiving some professional tips at first, and then going to group therapy together throughout the week to make sure they are working together as well as possible. On Friday, we dressed up to the nines and walked the red carpet before voting on awards. What a blast – we always love to see what our kiddos can put together in such a short amount of time!
The other intense day in April was a visit to the ROPES Course. We were able to spend the morning working together as teams and problem solving, and then after a delicious catered lunch, we used the afternoon to accomplish more individual feats (always with the support of each other, of course.) What an amazing opportunity!
