The Special Ed Prom held annually in the spring is meaningful in that it not only allows students who normally can’t attend dances a chance to do so, but it brings together different communities.
This event is made possible through the hard work and planning of the Leadership class and the members of Amaze Club. The club meets every Wednesday at lunch in room 401 and works hard to help and befriend the special ed students by spending lunch together, engaging in conversations, and playing games.
Students who are not part of a special ed class nor Amaze Club can also attend this event by volunteering to become an escort or a dance partner of one of the special ed students at the dance. Parents are also involved with planning, as they often provide fundings for food, equipment, and insight.
“I think these kinds of events are a wonderful opportunity as they allow students who don’t normally get to attend these kinds of exciting events a chance to do so,” said Julie Argyle, a special ed teacher.
The dance will take place sometime in May, but the exact date is still being planned. It would not be possible if not for the hard work of all who contribute.
