Friday, May 3, the Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School Life Skills Class took its annual year-end trip. For over 20 years this trip has marked the culmination of the school year and the students have worked, selling cookies at lunch and cheese logs at Christmas, to earn funds for the excursion that is a life-lesson, not just a day away from campus.

Granger Chevrolet’s staff met with the LCM Life Skills class to give them a great send off on their End of Year trip to Galveston’s Please Pier.

Granger Chevrolet’s staff met with the LCM Life Skills class to give them a great send off on their End of Year trip to Galveston’s Please Pier.

This year’s adventure was to Galveston Island to visit the new Pleasure Pier, an amusement park built on the same location where the Flagship stood for many years. Twelve Life Skills students made the trip, as well as six regular education students who are part of the “Meet in the Middle” team, LCM High School’s nationally recognized Special Olympics program that, “… involves students of all ability levels in activities that empower them to serve as agents of change in their schools and communities.”

The students traveled in the comfort of a charter bus, thanks to the generosity of Al and Dean Granger of Granger Chevrolet, who covered transportation expenses for this annual adventure.

 Blake Cassidy and Courtney Chauvin give Al and Dean Granger a plaque to show their appreciation for Granger Chevrolet providing transportation for the Life Skills end of year excursion.
