Hundreds of smiling, laughing and cheering Canyons School District students participated Friday, May 14, in the District’s first-ever Sports Day for children in special education programs. The event, held at Alta High School, was for all elementary-age students whose Individualized Education Programs call for special education services.
Participants ranged from students in wheelchairs to those with mild cases of autism. After a Parade of Athletes, students participated in four separate events: kick ball, target throwing, dancing and an obstacle course.The four events were all based on IEP-goal skills and were designed to give the students the opportunity to show the skills they have learned, including social skills.
All student athletes received a participation ribbon for each event.
