PRDS Student Receives Recognition

  • Sa’niya McDonald has been awarded Student of the Year.   Sa’niya is a friendly girl who enjoys learning new things.   She transitions easily and attends to tasks.  Sa’niya eagerly participates in school-wide events whether in person or via Zooms.  A main focus for Sa’niya is in the area of vocational skills. During both remote and in-person instruction, Sa’niya has participated in various small group lessons over Zoom.  Topics have included:  job choices, getting a job, keeping a job,  interviewing skills, appropriate work attire and appropriate work habits.  Simulated experiences have included completing and correcting food orders, flower arranging, stocking shelves, customer service skills and bagging  groceries.

    Sa’niya’s academic skills have increased significantly since September. Continuing on the path of functionality, her development in writing and spelling skills has allowed her to learn new skills such as addressing envelopes and filling out applications. Sa’niya is continuing to grow into a responsible and mature young lady. Sa'niya is a student in Allison Marotta's class at PRDS.
