This Tuesday was SO MUCH FUN!! Unfortunately, it was our last week for this session, but we sure did go out with a bang!
The choices for this weeks groups were: olympic games, making treasures and trophies for those in the olympic games, and dance party group!
Olympic games group was absolutely filled to the brim with energy!! The kids were outside sprinting around for as long as they could being GREAT athletes in the olympic games!! There were team based games mostly so the kids had to rely and trust each other; they did very well! Seeing them work together with determination was so fantastic. It got a little rainy at times so they had to come in, but when they did they were not short on things to do because of the awesome dance party group.
Dance parties are super fun no matter where you go! And at The Spectrum, it gets even better! The kids not only nicely took turns in choosing the songs to play on the projector, but they got to dress up in costumes while they danced! And dance they did... We also discovered lots of wonderful singing talent! These kids rocked the house with their amazing energy!
The craft group was extra special this week because instead of exclusively making things for themselves, the kids made cool awards for the kids participating in the olympic games! This was a very nice thing for them to do. The intensity and focus in the craft room was amazing! The kids were all managing to have really fun conversations with each other and the interns, and also use all that creativity to churn out some really cool things!!
A huge thank you to all the parents, caregivers, one-on-one's, supporters, interns, friends, families and most importantly, the kids, for making this spring such a fantastic time for everybody involved. It has really been fun for all of us, and it was so amazing to see the kids coming out of their shells and having a really good time each week. We are all very proud of them and really appreciate the time we got to spend with them. So thank you again for that opportunity that you helped us achieve!
We hope to see you all this summer for our summer program, but if we don't see you, have a great summer and hopefully we'll catch you in the fall :)
