Unified partners with Special Olympics to build relationships

On Friday, Jan. 26, 2018, Bradford and Tremper high school basketball teams will go toe-to-toe in their second matchup of the season. The girls’ game will take place at 5:30 p.m., followed by the boys’ game at 7 p.m. Kicking off with this game is a new district initiative called Teammates.

Teammates is the merging of different groups of students at each school, such as members of key clubs, student government and students with exceptional needs. The goal is to increase the involvement of students with exceptional needs in extracurricular activities while building meaningful relationships with peers. The group will continue to attend games together throughout the remainder of the school year.

This initiative aligns with the Special Olympics Unified Sports program, Fans in the Stands.
