Wrapping Up the Year with Great Events!

It's hard to believe that it's May already, but it sure is nice to hear the birds chirping and to see the sunshine and everything blooming and growing! As we wrap up the year there are some upcoming events I wanted to share with you.

West Genesee Unified Sports Basketball Team
#ONEWG
Unified Sports
You may have heard about our Unified Sports team at the high school this year from Dr Brown's Blog, signs at the high school, the District e-Newsletter, or on twitter. I was thrilled to attend the first games that we hosted at WGHS. There were more smiles and cheers than I have heard at any other sporting event!

I am excited to attend more games.The next home games are on May 3 and 8, both at 5:30 p.m. with the final culminating event on May 23 at 5:30; all games are at WGHS. Come out and support our athletes, and I guarantee you will enjoy the games!

Special Olympics
The Special Olympics are coming soon too! On May 18 we will have a number of student athletes compete in the Special Olympic Games at CNS High School. The games run from 9:30 a.m. -1:30 p.m. with a rain out date of May 25. They are requesting that all families, parents, and non-participants remain in the bleachers as they expect over 800 athletes. What a huge event to be part of!

LDA Summer Programs
The LDA of CNY will once again be offering their summer programs. The programs offer students an opportunity to learn by doing fun activities and to meet new friends. The SAIL program offers classes in reading, writing and math as well as art and technology. The Learning without Borders is geared for students 14-16 years old focusing on building confidence, team skills, and community experiences. The flyers for both programs are attached here:  SAIL and Learning without Borders.

The end of the year will be here before we know it, so take some time to enjoy the sunshine and some of the upcoming events.

Take Care
