Knew you had it in you.

    West’s CITI High Works Play Day

     

     20141113_112300  Play Day

    The Play Day Program is designed to provide play activities and socialization opportunities for children too young to participate in regular Special Olympic events. It provides an introduction to Special Olympics not only to the children, but also to their parents.  Ms. Tangen recruited 28 freshman students from the new CITI High Program to work as helpers. Some were team leaders, some were in charge of a station, others helped pass out awards, and the rest helped where needed. It was a rewarding experience for all involved.  Click here for more pictures.
