Buzzing with Activity for Disability Awareness Month

Buzzing+with+Activity+for+Disability+Awareness+Month
Lauren Myers

In honor of Disability Awareness Month, the EHHS National Honors Society recognized the students in our school with disabilities of their own. The students involved in the Honors Society came together and created a sort of field day that could be enjoyed by all. 

The field day was on Thursday March 21st and took place in the gym. Everyone came together at their designated time and played fun activities. The activities included volleyball, hot potato, basketball, corn hole, and four square. Each activity had an allotted time and there was a time keeper who told everyone when to switch stations. There was also food supplied by the culinary teachers, the Profettos and the students who purchased snacks. 

Everyone in the Honors Society was included in the process of planning the event while their advisors Mrs. Myers and Mrs. Bogart helped these plans come to life. EHHS English Teacher Mrs. Myers said, “It was all the kids’ idea. We didn’t have anything to do with it.” Mrs. Myers believes that the event was very successful and has since spoken to the Honors Society students and they’ve stated they hope to do something similar next year. 

The event was not only enjoyed by the students invited, but by the Honors Society students. EHHS senior and Honors Society president, Lainie D’Auria said, “The activity went great. All the kids who participated along with the honor society members had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.”

To participate in the Honors Society activities, you must first be accepted into the Honors Society. To do this your freshman and sophomore year grades will be looked at. These grades must be high honors every quarter. You will also need to be participating in school and community activities. Your application to the Honors Society will be reviewed by a panel and you may either be accepted or denied. 

The Honors Society has been working to make the community a better place while also trying to be inclusive of everyone.
