Special Day, Special Smiles

What a fantastic day we enjoyed with our friends from Special Olympics MA today!  The weather was perfect and the Tabor community showed up ready to make the day special for over 250 athletes and their teachers.  We had an incredible time!
The smiles on the faces of our unified teams were memorable as we played basketball, volleyball, and enjoyed weightlifting, fitness events, tumbling and field games such as frisbee, football, soccer, bocce and so much more! The Tabor students brought confident energy and enthusiasm along with a spirit of fun which made our guests feel welcome and ready to play.
Tim Cleary, Dean of Students, shared, “Our day with Special Olympics was a highlight of the fall for me.” As he shared thanks with the school community after the event, recognizing the faculty organizers, Cheryl Moore and Tamar Cunha, he added that the Special Olympics representatives and the teachers coming from area schools told him they had never seen students engage in these events as well as our students did today. Perhaps the best feedback he received was from one of the athletes who exclaimed that they made “a new best friend” today.  Tabor faculty member Kenny Ackerman shared his thanks with his Tabor team and told them a few of the comments our guest teacher’s shared with him about their students’ is a particularly uplifting one: "XXXX rarely makes eye-contact with anyone and often has her chin buried in her chest. She also never gets involved on her own. By the end of the day, she was seeking out the Tabor kids to play without any coaxing from us. And, look at her chin! She is holding it high!" Other comments were similar sharing new ways their children were challenging themselves by trying new activities and making contact with new people with enthusiasm.

 While our juniors and seniors showed our freshmen the right way to host Special Olympics, our sophomores were enjoying some time at Carney Academy helping their students with a literacy project. The sophomores brought similar energy to their task and also enjoyed making some new friends. We are incredibly proud of our students, each of whom did their part to help out and create a morning full of positive energy and fun, wherever they were, whatever their part. Their empathy and joy shone through in every way. Way to go, Seawolves!
Note:  Our next event for Special Olympics is the Polar Plunge on December 15 at 11:15 at Silvershell Beach in Marion. The student-run club was working hard this morning to sign up plungers with great success. It is likely that this year’s event will be one of our largest! Join the fun and be a supporter!
