From the Top of the Hill: Gearing Up for the Cooler Months

For many animals, colder temperatures trigger a physiological  response to hibernate- to settle down for the winter months, slow down daily doings in order to conserve energy.  However, one particular group of critters is showing no signs of stopping.
Extra Special People does not hibernate.  In facing colder weather, Extra Special People’s programs offer continuous opportunities to be warmed. 
As 360 Staff finish up their after school offerings from the Fall semester, they are already planning new lessons for the Spring 360 semester that sprouts up in January.  Make sure you sign up for a spot (to participate and to volunteer) in the next few weeks!
For any family raising a young person with a developmental disability, whether experienced with ESP or just starting to get involved, you’re invited for feasting and fun at the ESP Holiday Luncheon on December 14.   Held at the Classic Center starting at 11:45am,  the ice rink will be reserved for ESP families to skate on and will be followed with a catered meal to share in together.
Of course many of us look forward to the coming of Santa Claus this season, but even Santa Claus himself has his calendar marked for the ML5K on January 19th and Big Hearts Pageant on February 7th.  The elf on the shelf keeps reminding him every night to order his Big Hearts tickets and limit the cookie intake so he can keep up with our crew at the race.
So before you settle down into your own cozy caves of home, make sure you check out what is going on at Extra Special People this winter season.  Trust me, its NOT the season you want to sleep through!
