Hockey 

This month students continued to played hockey.  Their hockey stick skills are improving and we are noticing more passing and better shot selection at the goal. They seem to really enjoy the activity. Students are placed throughout the gym. They are instructed to remain in their boxes. Staying in their box allows every student an equal chance to shoot or pass the puck. Being confined to specific areas also prevents students from running into each other. We have gotten positive feedback from the students about our hockey unit.

Bowling Trips Have Begun at Skillman

Kickball and Running at 179

213's Super SoccerStars Shine

Students from P4@213 are taking part in the Super Soccer Stars Shine Program. The program uses soccer as a vehicle to teach life skills to individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. They work with a developmentally-appropriate curriculum designed by licensed educators and therapists that promotes the complete growth of each individual and encourages players to improve at his or her own pace. They use soccer to enhance peer interactions and provide a safe environment for players to increase social potential.
