In an example of true student inclusion, the El Dorado High School AVID teachers along with the El Dorado High School Special Education teachers, arranged for a very special lesson involving baseball. The true lessons learned with this unit really had nothing to do with baseball! This event taught our kids to take care of each other, support each other, and to find ways to make someone else’s day better!
On Sept. 29 the El Dorado High School AVID students and several of our special education students met at Ponder Park to play a game of baseball. Everyone, including our parents, brought commitment and enthusiasm to the event that revealed team work, collaboration and an enduring bond. The students, parents and faculty who participated became a community that learned to appreciate the value of each other. Service for the community grew into an experience of dedication and love.
