  • A Holiday Gift from the 2016 CCB Choir

    This year our CCB Choir formed itself in about a week under the direction of student Julie McGinnity, then went caroling at the Littleton Light Rail Station, outside Romancing the Bean Coffee shop.

    Editor’s Note: We thought this hometown article about our student Chaz and his American record in his first-ever marathon last month well worth the read.

    Students and staff wrapped it up on the downhill side of the year, putting final touches on Secret Santa gifts before our traditional holiday brunch.

    We’re in our final week – final days, really – of the 2016 year at the Colorado Center for the Blind. It’s not exactly like winding down, but more like an all-cylinders-open surge for the finish line. Alejandro went on a support drop yesterday, and is cooking a big meal tomorrow. Ryan served his mini-meal…

    We’re nine days into December and, not all that surprisingly, 9 is the temperature this morning. Robert routinely interrupts class with overhead PA announcements, requesting some student or staff member to please stop by his desk on a break. This is a sure sign that there’s a Secret Santa something or other waiting for the…

    We had a little bit of snow this morning, but not enough to keep us at home. Snow is just a part of everyday life and for our students, learning to travel in all weather means feeling confident about traveling to their jobs someday. But it was cold, and will be colder tomorrow!
