On a sunny spring day, a select group of Montgomery ISD students took the field at the MISD Athletic stadium to participate in the first ever “Mission Possible Day.” The event was hosted by the MISD Special Education department and featured a wide range of events designed to showcase their athletic skills while having fun.
“Students were able to participate in field events such as Races, Distance Throwing, Individual Skills Games of Kicking and Dribbling, Group Games of Giant Volleyball, Parachute Games, Giant Cup Stacking, Line Dancing,” Executive Director of Special Education Meredith Burg said. “All games and activities were modified to fit the individual needs of our fantastic athletes.”
Also in attendance were student volunteers, district employees and parents to cheer the athletes, making it a special day for everyone.
“As the mother of a child with special needs, my circle tends to be pretty small. Talking to other parents that day felt like a weight was being lifted, even if temporarily. We connected and were able to brag on our kids’ victories and have the other person truly understand that sometimes the little things are REALLY BIG to a special needs parent,” MISD Marvels parent Jessica Prosser said. “Seriously, best day ever!”
Video Production students from Montgomery High School captured the action, producing a video highlighting the day’s exciting events. You can watch the video below.
