Lynda: We love the program, and it's interesting because even though Geoffrey was a little hesitant about making the transition, he loves it, and I think the biggest part is the interaction with the other kids in the classroom. He's made some very good friendships with the classroom, other students.
They love to attend classes. They love to attend meetings outside of classes where they'll do Zoom calls after the class setting. They're talking about the things that they're doing for fun, their likes and their interests, their extracurricular activities. And I know the school also offers those extracurricular activities too, like Pet Club, and Jeffrey is a huge fan of animals.
I believe they would definitely meet up in person if COVID weren't a big factor. The school has had some meetups with bike rides and other events, which is good. So they know they do try and have a lot of in-person get-togethers whenever .
Geoffrey: Normally I wouldn't be able to see many people, so I've been able to talk to people and get to know them well. They're all over the state. Like I think some are in Fort Collins and some are in Castle Rock, so they're all scattered around Colorado, but it's still fun talking to them.
We like talking to each other about what we've done this year or what we're planning on doing next year, or what COVID has affected us from doing or sometimes in class we like tell each other what we're doing in class.
I definitely have made lots of new friendships, and that's better for me because I haven't known many people that I can talk to so much.
