Wenonah Elementary School recently completed a four-week New York Islanders Floorball Program to introduce students to the game and culture of hockey. Floorball promotes active movement, the enhancement of motor skills and team building.

The New York Islanders provided Wenonah with brand new floorball hockey sticks, balls, jerseys, and a goals and curriculum guide for physical education teachers to implement into their daily classes. Students learned various skills, games and activities throughout the month of March and had an absolute blast doing so!

Throughout the month of March, students at Wenonah Elementary School participated in a variety of lessons surrounding Disabilities Acceptance Month and the theme of inclusion. The lessons led up to a day of celebrations on March 21 for World Down Syndrome Day.

On this day, students and staff wore blue and yellow, as well as mismatched, crazy socks. Special education teachers and students passed out ribbons to all the staff in the building to honor the day. Additionally, classes completed activities to learn about Down Syndrome and how students can be more inclusive. The activities were led by Taylor Ahrem and Isabella Busch.

Ms. Ahrem created a video for World Down Syndrome Day that can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/nbJQYpfybTg?feature=shared
