ASD Sports Day

The students walked into the classroom dressed in their sports gear, buzzing. It was a great feeling to watch them excitedly talk among themselves about what activities they would be participating in, and exhibited a wonderful sense of camaraderie and a passion for being active. We started the day discussing healthy habits and the only muscle in our body that never rests; our heart. We were so thankful for Storm's mom Pernille for coming in and leading us through a yoga session! After snack and recess it was time to go to the gym and enjoy each other's company and be active while participating in a range of activities. You can tell we had a blast!
