On Thursday, May 18, the third annual Dragon Games took over the Johnston Stadium, providing students with disabilities the opportunity to showcase their talent and skills on the field.
Dragon Games is for all students in the special education programs ranging from elementary to high school. The games and activities will be sensory oriented such as face painting, bubbles, a soccer kick, bowling, an obstacle course, and much more.
The goal is to let students participate in a field day that caters to their needs, while promoting peer and social interaction, and activity. Johnston students from other buildings have volunteered to work the stations and help students play the games.
“Dragon Games gives students with disabilities a chance to participate and shine,” said Carol Dresher, a special education severe and profound teacher at JMS. “They get to be with their peers and have people cheer them on.”
