Congratulations to the Intermediate, Junior High and High School Life Skills students, faculty, coaches and staff that were at West Point this past Saturday for the Special Olympics. Our kids did a fantastic job and displayed time and time again the triumph of the human spirit. Our coaches did a wonderful job getting our students prepared for this event and coaching them through their numerous events. Our aides, assistants and teachers were excellent, as usual, in taking great care of our students in between events, taking photos and cheering our student athletes on to victory. Special KUDOS to Carlos Perez for taking the lead on another successful, fun and well-organized Special Olympic Event for our students!

A huge thank you to Adam Countryman, the Tech teacher at the Middle School! His talent and generosity led to the completion of four new costume racks for the district's costume shop (which is currently housed at the former Rosendale Elementary School). He worked with the students in Deb Storrs' class to create racks that can be used for years to come. It was incredible to watch him work with the students. He is patient and funny and brings out the best in his students - an absolute pleasure to work with!
