The Knox Community School Board members commended the efforts of the special needs staff during the Spotlight on Success portion of their board meeting Monday night.
Instructor Jenny Fletcher explained that the severe and profound special needs students participated in a Spring Stampede near the end of the school year and all instructors and students had a great time. There were over 80 special needs students from Argos, Plymouth, LaVille, John Glenn and Knox and 30 high school volunteers helped with activities.
Many sponsors were also in attendance at the Spring Stampede who donated items such as pizza and items for goodie bags. Financial support gave the volunteers a chance to purchase t-shirts for all of the kids and prizes.
A short video of the activities during the Spring Stampede was shown to the board. They commended all of the staff members for their hard work and dedication to the students in the JESSE and special needs programs.
