Survey for the Name of the ARMSTRONG & DDC Program Merger
As we move forward with the merger of the Armstrong & DDC programs we are regularly asked what the name of the new program will be. We asked for suggestions from the parent and staff surveys and have selected three options for your consideration. We would like everyone's input on the new name & title. The three name options are LIFE (Learning Independence & Fostering Excellence), Journey, & Legacy. We are also asking for suggestions on the title. The three options are School, Academy, & Program. Please select your favorite pair from the choices below.

The American Printing House for the Blind (APH) Unforgettable Star Contest is a biannual competition that invites students, parents, teachers, administrators, rehabilitation instructors, and all APH customers to create a video about their favorite APH product. Cash prizes are awarded to the winning entries. Our very own Olivia Rios, a 3rd grader whose video is titled "The Joy of Painting", won first place in this year's competition. She is a student at Carl Sandburg school in Charleston. Congratulations to Olivia and her vision teacher, Ms. Koresch.
