Holiday Planning at Latham
I have worked at Latham Centers for 11 years now and the holidays are always the best time of the year. I believe this is the time when our staff shows how much they truly care for the students of Latham. Many of our staff spend their days before Christmas assisting the students with packing and helping reassure them that their visit will happen without any problem. For the students that have their holiday at Latham, the staff here makes the day so special and magical. The staff working the overnights play “Santa” and put out the stockings for the students to open when they wake and the kitchen staff makes an amazing meal for everyone. The students also gather together and open presents in front of the big Christmas tree. Many staff will sign up to work with the students on Christmas even if it is their day off just because it is such a fun day and everyone here truly enjoys themselves.
The staff that work at Latham are some of the most dedicated people I have ever met and I feel privileged to work next to them every day.
