ExpressionWorks Open House – Full House!
Last night, we held our first Open House at ExpressionWorks. This was tailored in the hopes that we would have new participants attend and try out the program. Our hope is that we will be able to enroll a few new participants for the New Year. Fingers crossed.
It sure was a packed house. It was lovely that we had Matthieu and Jenn from our RhythmWorks Program join us for the Open Class after dance class. We also had our long time dedicated Volunteer and Senior Behaviour Consultant Angela Cha join us once again, while Jordan’s Grandmother came and our dedicated Parent Doris Power.
Everyone enjoyed our popular Stretch Circle as usual, while they also had fun engaging in our Communication circle. This time it involved a Tongue Twister that was related our snacks.
We also worked on our language skills by reading the Recipe of the evening aloud. This helped us to focus on the need to communicate clearly while also standing tall to deliver our message to others. We also worked on our writing skills while reading the recipe.
Our friend Noah performed a short piece during our snack time.
After our tasty snack, we broke into 5 different groups which had us creating wonderful Avocado Quesadellias. People were even asking for seconds they were so good! We think that was a good sign.
We were also delighted that our new Volunteer Sam joined us for the first time. Thanks to all our other talented and loyal volunteers and staff who helped to make this program so successful.
