Shorewood High's T-Bird Crew sponsors storytime at TOP food

A flyer I picked up at Shoreline's TOP food the other day says this:

TOP foods of Shoreline and the Shorewood T-Bird Crew, a program for students with severe disabilities, invites you and your young child to Storytime in the TOP foods cafe. (The program is on Mondays from 10:15 to 11:00. The storytime is presented by a non-verbal student using technology.)

Here's some more information about the T-Bird Crew from the T-Bird Crew webpage: 

The T-Bird Crew is a program at Shorewood High School for students with severe disabilities.  It is a community-based program where we teach our students (and the community) how we all can be productive members of our community.

According to the webpage, Veronica Cook heads up the T-Bird Crew. Veronica has devoted most of her adult life to Special Education. 

What: Storytime by a non-verbal student using technology
When: Mondays from 10:15 - 11:00
Where: Shoreline TOP foods cafe

And here's a personal message from Veronica Cook:

"Our students with significant disabilities want to be involved members of our Shoreline Community.  One way they are doing this is by providing story time at Top Foods.  I really hope you will give them the chance to read to your children.  Please join us every Monday that there is school."
