HDESD Vision Services team applied and received a grant from the Blind and Visually Impaired Student (BVIS) fund so that students and their families could attend the 24th Annual BVIS Track and Field Event at Ackerman Middle School in Canby, OR on May 4th.
We were able to spend the evening before honing the Expanded Core Curriculum areas of recreational and leisure skills and social skills by spending 3 hours at Wilsonville Family Fun Center!
Students along with their family members and teachers enjoyed go-karts, bumper boats, sky trail ropes course, laser tag and various arcade games along with some delicious pizza. Families stayed at the Wilsonville Quality Inn and after we fueled up on breakfast the kids were ready for the track event. The day was sunny and the kids were able to start off by going around to different field events. After a group picture, the running events began. It was wonderful to see students make new friends and get reacquainted with students they had met at other events previously such as camp.
We were thrilled to get to know family members better along with meet extended family members (such as grandparents) that came to support the student-athletes.
We look forward to next year! — Brenda Krueger, Teacher of the Visually Impaired
