Visit to Francis Parker High School

Some of our PACTT students and team visited our friends at Francis Parker High School this month. We played in the gym, shared a snack, and enjoyed our time with our FP crew!

Spirit Week: Door Decorating

One last Spirit Week post, and then we'll all get back to our regularly scheduled programming. :) The classrooms had a spring-themed door decorating contest -- check out our three finalists:

We've got Spirit, yes we do!

Spirit Week kicked off Monday with "Dress Your Head" Day - crazy hats, hair and other assorted decorations filled the building! 

Families Fable-ous theater experience

Some of our PACTT families attended last weekend's sensory-friendly performance of Fable-ous at Lifeline Theater in Rogers Park. PACTT is proud to support Lifeline and its series of sensory-friendly shows. Some of our school team members regularly volunteer their time to help sensory-sensitive theater-goers enjoy the show. For the full list of Lifeline shows with special accommodations, visit their website here:

It's the holiday season ...

Some of our School and Transition students braved the cold, and hopped the train downtown to check out the holiday lights and tree in Millennium Park!


It's time for our annual Thanksgiving Feast! The halls are decked, the whole building smells like turkey, and family and friends are arriving to celebrate with us. We are incredibly grateful to share this annual event with all our PACTT families. Happy Thanksgiving, from all of us to all of you!

Baseball fever!

We're root, root, rooting for our home team! #FlyTheW!

We've got spirit, yes we BOO!

Halloween celebrations of all sorts throughout the buildings the last few days - there were pumpkins to carve, cookies to decorate, costumes to share, and more!

Exploring the Farm

Some of our Elementary crew joined our Transition class on a trip to Wagner Farm in Glenview. The students got to pet cows, enjoyed the porch rocking chairs, and brought back apples to eat and pumpkins to decorate!
