Today, students from Wheaton North and Wheaton Warrenville South High Schools participated in the inaugural Special Games hosted at Wheaton North. More than 40 students in the Syracuse Program and adaptive physical education classes at both schools competed in sprints, target throws, ladder ball, basketball shooting, floor hockey and bowling.
The Special Games event was organized by Rebecca Blacharczyk (Wheaton North) Matthew Janosek (Wheaton Warrenville South) and Michelle Schaffer (Wheaton Warrenville South) and Jeannine Prucha (district office).
"Students in our adaptive PE classes or Syracuse Program may not be able to participate in physically competitive games during a typical school event. The Special Games brings together the entire school, and in this case, both of our high schools, and celebrates all abilities," says Jeannine Prucha. "There were so many smiles today, from participating students and peer supporters - that was truly the highlight of the day."
During the opening ceremony, peer mentors in the Falcon Flock and Tiger Crew, along with the participating students, enjoyed a parade of athletes who carried in a torch, the National Anthem, a mascot v.s. principal relay race and opening speeches.
While the Falcon mascot beat WWS Principal Claypool in the opening bouncy ball relay race by a nose, ultimately the Tiger students in attendance took home the Spirit Stick of the Inaugural Special Games.
