Posted on 03/18/2015

Last week, students from the District's Community Transition Program volunteered as helpers at the Willamette ESD annual Circus Day for preschool students in the Early Intervention and Early Childhood Special Education Program. 

The Community Transition Program provides support and training for students in high school special education programs who are 18-21 years old and transitioning out of the high school. 

Many of the Community Transition students are alumni of the ESD preschool program. "They were excited for the opportunity to give back, said teacher Andres Caputo. "Our students helped run carnival games, concessions and direct the preschoolers."
