Are you ready to share your basketball skills? Are you ready to have some fun?!
This Friday, March 9th, our Best Buddies and their Grade 8 leaders will be hosting their annual large school event, "Hoop It Up"!
Tickets will go on sale on this Tuesday. Tickets are $2/entry to join in this exciting and fun morning. Stay tuned for our morning announcements and ticket selling in our mall area at first recess Tuesday-Thursday this week. Our Best Buddies will be learning about collecting and tallying both money and ticket sales, as well as working on their communication and social skills as they are in charge of the announcements, ticket sales, and the actual event.
On Friday March 9th, in our SKT gym from 9-11 am, all SKT students who have purchased a ticket will be called down to participate in our "Hoop It Up" event. There will be small prizes for the top scorer in each class as well as a certificate for each top boy and girl of each division (Primary, Junior, and Intermediate). The proceeds of our event will go towards our upcoming Best Buddies community excursion where we will be taking a city bus to participate in a Physical Literacy event. Each of Best Buddies will be paired with their Grade 8 leaders and supported by our Educational Assistants, as we navigate taking a city bus, providing correct change, collecting our ticket and going into the community to engage in a social and physical activity.
