Special Needs Field Day to be held at Elkhart ISD April 25th

Elkhart and Slocum are co-hosting the 5th annual Special Needs Field Day on Wednesday, April 25th at Jerry Ives Memorial Stadium. The meet will begin at approximately 9:00 a.m. and will conclude around noon. Participants will be students with special needs from the six school districts served by the Anderson County Special Education Co-op including Cayuga, Elkhart, Frankston, Neches, Slocum, and Westwood.

Kristin Steely, Elkhart High School Life Skills teacher, is the district coordinator for the 2018 Field Day. Both Elkhart and Slocum coaching staff will be assisting with the field events and their high school students will also serve as buddies for the event. Each athlete will be paired with a high school “buddy” to assist them throughout the day.

Students will be competing in the 50 yard dash, the 100 yard dash, tricycle race, wheelchair race, and a variety of field events. In addition, the athletes will enjoy face painting by the Elkhart National Art Honors Society, a visit with Sophie the therapy dog and her handler Sharon Davis, and have “buddy pictures” made.

This is the fifth year the Anderson County Special Education Co-op has hosted this event in conjunction with member districts. Every year the event rotates to one of the six districts in the Co-op.

The community is invited to come out to Jerry Ives Memorial Stadium and support these special athletes. Admission is free, and a concession stand will be available.
