|JAN 18: Celebrate National Compliment Day!
|Learning and understanding how to give and receive a genuine compliment is a social skill that is often forgotten, or is not given sincerely in our ever-busy world. Words of appreciation or thanks, that are communicated in a sincere and specific manner, go a long way toward building and maintaining positive relationships with others.
Two of the Room 5 student Social Skills groups have been working on the art of giving and receiving compliments. Sunday, January 24th, marks National Compliment Day for 2016 and we would like to share some of what we have learned and practiced with the school community. If you'd like to participate we will have information and materials posted outside Room 5, the week of January 18.

|FUNDRAISING: Host a Sign-Up for Auction 2016!
What is a Sign-Up?
It is a party/event hosted by Miraloma families as a donation to the auction. At the auctio
n, people sign up for parties by bidding on a slot.
Last year these
"Sign-Ups" brought in over $75,000 at our auction
- about a third of our total earnings! We hope we'll get as many fun Sign-Ups as possible for our upcoming auction on March 5, 2016!
What kind of Party/Events can you host?
Whatever you like! Adult-only, kids-only, or family events. In the past, we've had Italian, Indian, Peruvian, Caribbean, and Brazilian food-fests, beer and wine tastings, Dutch and South American cocktail parties, and game nights for the adults. For kids, there have been science, Lego, duct-tape, bowling, sleepover parties, and a lot more. Contact us for more information/ideas.
Please join in the fun and pitch in a Sign-Up!
Submit your Sign-Up here.
