Physical Activity Participation
Students of all ability levels were encouraged to attend the Back to School Dance on September 29, 2017. The Fuel Up to Play 60 team encouraged all students to participate while at the dance. Students with multiple disabilities were able to participate in this event with the assistance of the team, advisors, and volunteer parents.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The students and adults worked together as a team to advertise the dance as well as work the dance to ensure all students were participating as they were able.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We plan to make this Play last during the school year by hosting additional dances.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

We needed administrative approval to allow parent volunteers to assist with the special needs students. We also faced accessibility challenges, as some students needed handicapped accessible entrances that did not directly connect to the gym where the dance was held.
