This week we have celebrated Respect Week at school. An entire week dedicated to our Special Olympic athletes. Just like Homecoming week in the fall, we have had dress-up days, different activities during the week (parade through the school on Monday, Respect pledge signing and a few others), today we ended the week with an assembly to honor our Special Olympic dance and boys basketball teams. Our special needs team beat the varsity boys 20-2 today. Each of the boys was introduced just like before a varsity game, and then when one of the boys made a 3 point shot the entire student body cheered as if it was the winning shot of a varsity game. Needless to say, I was so proud of the student body today and how they respected the dance and boy’s basketball team. Yes, there is hope for today’s teenagers and the world they will be inheriting.
