7PROMA FIESTA TO REMEMBERParent Weekend 2012 featured a “Cinco de Mayo” themed prom. For many Heartspring parents, this special event provides a social setting they rarely get to experience. While students dance and spend time with their peers, parents and staff take the opportunity to visit with each other and watch their children show off their improved abilities to succeed in social situations and communication.<<Shae at prom.Andrew enjoying the festivities.Mark and his parents, Jeff and VickiThank you to Under the Willow Tree Photography for taking the time to photograph our families with a special “Cinco de Mayo” photo booth.(Clockwise) Alex and parents Chris-tina and William; Colin and parents Mia and Tim; Justin and parents Dana and Derek.ALWAYS LEARNINGHeartspring offers trainings to parents during Parent Weekend to help them better understand their children’s needs.
