Bell High School Students Participate in Unified Sports Special Olympics

On May 11, students at Bell High School enjoyed a Special Olympic field day. Each student from the Life Skills program and a Partner participated in events such as the Long Jump, Basketball, Bowling, Cornhole, Battleship and an Obstacle course. They also had some non-competitive events such as painting, dancing, water balloon toss and working with plants. This amazing field day supported the inclusion movement as Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores engaged with all students equally and everyone had a great time. “I am very proud of Bell High School Students,” one teacher said watching the event, “They really showed their hearts. This day was truly a blessing.” It was an event that they hope to repeat every year.
