2014 Annual Life Skills Track and Field Event

The Adapted Physical Education Department recently held their annual track meets for students who are part of the Fundamental Academic Living Skills (FALS) classes. The elementary and secondary FALS classes each have a day set aside for them to come out to one of our MISD tracks and participate in fun events that include throwing, jumping, dancing, walking, running and wheelchair competitions.

This year, the events were held at Wester Middle School on October 14th and 15th. Teachers, as well as parents, enjoyed a beautiful day outside observing students socializing and being physically active while competing in a friendly atmosphere. Student organizations from our local high schools and middle schools had the opportunity to volunteer and build relationships with participants. The staff at R L Anderson Special Education Related Services make this memorable event possible each year.
