Instructors at James Madison Volunteer to Make a Difference

Autism teachers, speech therapists and educational assistants at James Madison Elementary School recently gave their time to raise money for the Community Based Instruction program (CBI) at James Madison Elementary. They volunteered as workers of Pizza Ranch in Oostburg for the night.

CBI is a program for students with Severe Cognitive Disabilities and Autism. The students work in the school's self-contained classrooms on skills relative to being in the community such as safety, bus routines, map skills, communication and money skills to use as part of their individual educational programs (IEP's).

The event was a success with $525 being raised for the CBI Program. The staff, teachers and parents, who worked the event, thank all of you who attended this important fundraiser.

Some of the James Madison volunteers are pictured here, left to right, Christina Martello, Lynn Wilterdink, Kim Cline, Kendra Kooistra, Amie Rothschadl, Jamie Schlueter, Sue Worthman and Gloria Capetillo.
