Unified sports events happening soon
Unified sports has been a way for students with special needs to participate in physical education with the rest of the student body.
The next Unified Sports event will be May 3rd.
“I think that for some students it is a way for them to participate and be acknowledged, many of who may not be acknowledged,” said special education teacher Mrs. Emma Patterson
They usually play basketball, soccer, and ultimate football, Patterson said.
For the past several years McNary has been holding unified sports on a near bi-monthly basis during the school day, Patterson said.
Physical education teacher Mrs. Marlo Cleary said, “The PE staff are tentatively planning on a soccer showcase for unified sports.”
Unified Sports is all about building teams that support and build each other up, not tear each other down in the heat of the moment.
