October 29, 2020 for Our Fall Festival and Trunk-or Treat! 

Fall Festival:

Please join us for our Fall Festival Fundraiser on Thursday, October 29 from 1:30pm-4:30pm at FACE! The Fall Festival will kick off with a Trunk-or-Treat at 1:30pm so that all FACE students have an opportunity to Trick-or-Treat in their Halloween costumes before the end of the school day! This will be a free school event, but we will encourage all guests to purchase tickets to play the games and enjoy the Festival booths and attractions. All ticket sales and donations will go toward purchasing a FACE van for student transportation!

Additionally, come by the Title 1 Booth anytime during the Fall Festival for a free gift and Parent Education Workshop on “Supporting Communication at Home and in the Community!” Please contact Alesha McKay or Sydney Sampson (amckay@faceprorgam.org, ssampson@faceprogram.org) if you are interested in supporting the Fall Festival Fundraiser as a Trunk-or-Treat car sponsor or Festival Booth volunteer! We will be accepting money for the Fundraiser and Halloween Candy for the Trunk-or-Treat all month, please look for the donation box in the Main Office!

 

Trunk-or-Treat:

THIS IS A FAMILY-FRIENDLY EVENT: HALLOWEEN MASKS AND “SCARY” COSTUMES ARE NOT PERMITTED. STUDENTS CAN TRUNK-OR-TREAT WITH THEIR CLASSROOM OR WITH FAMILY CHAPERONES. AFTER THE TRUNK-OR-TREAT, STUDENTS WILL BE DISMISSED TO GO HOME OR ATTEND THE FALL FESTIVAL WITH THEIR FAMILY FROM 2:30-4:30PM. ADDITIONALLY, ALL FACE COVID-19 PROTOCOLS WILL APPLY TO THIS EVENT: TEMPERATURE CHECKS AND FACE MASKS ARE REQUIRED FOR ENTRY.


Trunk-or-treating provides a safe and COVID-19 cautious alternative to trick-or-treating with your children this year, with staff and family who can support nonverbal communication and behaviors.


IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN CHAPERONING, VOLUNTEERING, OR SPONSORING A CAR, PLEASE CONTACT ALESHA MCKAY AND SYDNEY SAMPSON (amckay@faceprorgam.org, ssampson@faceprogram.org). FACE will be accepting Halloween candy donations all month in the main office.

April 14, 2020 Parent Resources for dealing with COVID – 19

https://secureservercdn.net/184.168.47.225/bc1.f2e.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Resources-for-Families-during-Covid-4-14-20.pdf

 


The Florida Autism Center of Excellence (FACE) offers successful educational programs for children and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The center’s innovative collaboration with our public school district is bringing new choices for families of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.  Specialized educational programs like FACE provide essential, quality services to this growing population of children.  FACE offers parents and students more options that the traditional school setting.  For students in Kindergarten through 5th grade there are three educational tracks: academic, transition and intervention.  This allows students on both a traditional diploma track and alternate diploma track several options.  As students move into middle school they either transition to a typical school from the academic track, or continue on the Alternative Diploma track in the intervention or transition track.  The use of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy also sets FACE apart from traditional ESE programs.  Please use the links above to contact FACE to ask questions and apply for admission.

With the rate of autism diagnoses on the rise – current numbers estimate that one in every 59 U.S. children is on the autism spectrum – the Florida Autism Charter School of Excellence (FACSE), a Florida nonprofit entity, was awarded a grant by the Florida Department of Education to open FACE in 2007. FACE exclusively serves children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and offers educational solutions for student’s ages 3 to 22 in pre-k through 12th grade and beyond. Located at 6310 East Sligh Avenue Tampa, FL 33617, the school is available to families in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk, Manatee and Sarasota counties.

The program at FACE focuses on developing the appropriate paths of learning to meet the specific individual needs of each student in all areas of functioning.  At FACE, students gain the academic, social, language, behavioral, vocational and life skills they need to help them become more independent later in life. FACE uses the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) – an effective, research-based strategy that has been proven to be effective for teaching students with autism.

Beyond the academic curriculum, FACE also offers students opportunities to participate in enriching activities essential to their social growth and development. During the school week, all students engage in the community garden program, Paws for Friendship Music, and Art.
