High school invites Special Olympics athletes to assembly

Geri Kinsley
Special to Review

Chino Valley High School invites local Special Olympics athletes to attend their assembly on Tuesday, Oct. 1, to support the school-based Unified Sports Program.

The assembly's theme is White Out, so everyone will be dressed in all white to show their support for the new program.

The afterschool members of the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) will introduce their team members during Spirit Week.

Anna Sanchez, FCCLA president, invited Isaac Sanft of Special Olympics Arizona to promote Project Unify at the high school.

Project Unify is a student-run program meant to encourage young people to foster respect, dignity and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities using the programs and initiatives of Special Olympics.

The Unified Sports PE course is made up of Athletes (students with intellectual disabilities) and Partners (students without disabilities) who work together as teams to learn about different sports, and train to go to Special Olympics events. They are looking to expand the program to include not only Track and Field but other Special Olympics events within the program. The Cougars will work toward participating in the spring area meets and regional games as well as the State games. PE Coach Jenda Ballard is teaching soccer and basketball in the classroom with the hope that they will become events the high school will be able to compete in.

Anyone wanting to attend the pep assembly may call 928-636-2298 to R.S.V.P.
