Congratulations to the RETSD students and employees honoured by the Manitoba Council for Exceptional Children (MCEC) at their annual Yes I Can! awards ceremony last week.
The awards acknowledge the achievements of children and youth with disabilities and encourage them to seek their highest potential. They were presented to: Joey Adams of Princess Margaret School and Emily LeClare of River East Collegiate for self advocacy; and Carter Harper of Polson School for academics.
As well, a Certificate of Recognition (for excellence in assisting children and youth with special needs) was presented to resource teacher Jennifer Jantz for, among other things, her work with assistive technology and her advocacy for the students with whom she works.
