BtL students participate in a number of activities related to a monthly theme. Students take field trips to various locations where they receive insight into different aspects of the theme. Themes during the school year include the following: Disability Awareness, Government, Financial Responsibility, Living Arrangements, Relationships, Health, Community Service and Recreation.
August theme was related to Team Building. New students were welcomed into BtL and had the opportunity to meet their peers. Students participated in various activities promoting skills such as, leadership, communication, team work and problem solving techniques (photos 1 and 2). Students also learned about the solar eclipse and made viewers from boxes so they could safely watch the eclipse (photo 3). The theme for September is Disability Awareness.
