It was a pleasure to be able to spend a shift with our residential staff at Latham School. It was a bright, sunny afternoon and students and their coaches were practicing for the upcoming Special Olympics track and field event scheduled for May 18th. The campus field was alive with a variety of field and track events including the broad jump and the ball toss. Students were riding their bikes and there was even a siting of our VP of Adult Services circling the field with his bike helmet securely in place. It is clear that our students will be wonderful competitors.
Because the weather was so great I was able to enjoy my first picnic of the season with students and staff on the lawn. It was a relaxing interlude with good conversation and lots of questions about the evenings activities. It was “beauty night” and there was something for everyone. Students and staff donned stress masks. Some students had their hair done and others were intent on doing their nails. Everyone was involved and having a good time. By the time bedtime arrived everyone was truly ready for a good night’s sleep.
