Our 8th grade students took a trip to visit the clients at COF (with the help of Craig Evans) after researching and reading about an adult with an intellectual disability in the short story “Flowers for Algernon”. I (Mrs. Smith) brought out my “good camera” to try to capture the beautiful moments of our students interacting, volunteering, and working alongside these adults while they were performing their job of assembling boxes for CenturyLink. I didn’t realize that one of my settings on my camera was off until I sat down to edit these pictures and saw all of the “noise”/graininess in each and every picture. I was heartbroken at thinking that the pictures wouldn’t ever be able to display the beauty of the day. But then I got to thinking….these pictures are the perfect metaphor for this experience. The students were nervous and a bit apprehensive going into it. Most had never had any interaction with an adult with an intellectual disability. At the end of the experience, when all of the students were told that we needed to head back to the school, the adults were met with the students asking to stay longer and inquiring about when we could go back. What seemed to be something a little uncomfortable and unfamiliar, turned into something full of immense joy, laughter, and friendship. We may have helped them build boxes, but we were the ones who received the most from this experience. My heart will never forget it, and I hope their hearts won’t, either. Enjoy these grainy pictures, and I pray that you can look past the surface-level noise and see the absolute beauty underneath. We have some seriously amazing students at Central Heights.

This is Mr. Spencer and I am asking for your help. As you all know our phones have not been working properly for several weeks. The last week has been the worst.

The number listed for phone repair on their website is 800-788-3600. Use any number related to the school to report the outage. Thank you for your help.
