In the spirit of the holidays and togetherness, students in Centereach High School’s Life Skills Class collaborated on the preparation and cooking of an in-class holiday feast to be enjoyed by the class prior to the holiday break. “Our Life Skills class is structured to educate our students on a wide set of social, behavioral, and everyday skills that will be used for a lifetime,” noted Thomas Bell, Principal of Centereach High School. “This exercise, while educational, also provided an engaging, fun experience that could be shared amongst the students in the class.”
Students in the Life Skills Class are special education students of various levels of learning challenges. During the class, students are taught basic lifelong skills such as how to wash and dry their clothes and how to cook. Students in the class are also provided experiences that teach goal-setting, problem-solving, communication, safety, and nutrition skills.
