Mrs. Hunter’s 2nd-grade class is participating in Project Unify. Project Unify is an organization related to Special Olympics that brings students with disabilities and partners them with students without disabilities. The students learn together about empathy, acceptance, and human kindness through sports education.
Students in Mrs. Hunter’s class have partnered with students at Pathfinder, and will meet throughout the year to swim and bowl together. Mrs. Hunter says, “ I am so excited to bring Project Unify to the elementary. The theme and ultimate goal is to teach our students that we are “Better Together”. My hope is that we are able to teach our students a new level of kindness and diversity through the experiences we will have with our new friends. Everyone belongs to someone, and everyone deserves to be loved and treated with respect.”
