“Lunch hour is the Best Hour of the Day” was the motto for the B.R.I.D.G.E.S. students this week! Both classes headed to local restaurants for their Community Based Instruction (CBI) field trip. Mrs. Karla Lama and Mrs. Courtney Henry’s class had the chance to experience delicious barbeque at Mission BBQ and Ms. Kathy Gorman-Gard and Ms. Donna Mansolillo’ s class headed for an all-American meal at Panera.

Prior to going on the CBI, students reviewed the menus and practiced ordering while they were in class. They also discussed proper restaurant manners. Once they arrived at the restaurants, each student ordered their own meal. The students at Panera, used their debit card to pay for their meal. During lunch, they all enjoyed time socializing with their friends and talking about what they were going to do over the weekend!

Each week our B.R.I.D.G.E.S. students continue to practice their Budgeting, Resources, Independence, Growth, Empowerment and Social Skills. We are so very proud of them! Keep up the great work!
