Students with and without disabilities are learning together thanks to programs designed by MA Special Olympics.  Beginning this month, 14 schools hoping to earn recognition as a ‘MA Unified Champion School’ have launched a Unified Youth Sports or Young Athletes program.  The program emphasizes values of inclusion, cooperation, and understanding.  At Rollins week one was a huge success!  The sessions, designed for PreK and K students, included singing movement songs, playing ‘I spy’, wiggling scarves, walking like animals, stretching, completing an obstacle course, and crossing the finish line together.  These 6-8 week programs will culminate in a Unified Sports Day planned for May 10th at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

LPS celebrated National Inclusion Week December 6-10th. This is the annual celebration of togetherness, recognizing inclusion in all of its forms. Several schools hosted an “Inclusion Spirit Week” including the Rollins School where Thursday’s theme taught the PreK and K students that “Inclusion is inviting everyone to play!”.  Students brought their favorite stuffed friend to the school.
