Hundreds of man hours, late night decorators, and community donors came together to create the Special Needs Prom.
Special Ed Department Chair Kayci Smith loves the dance because it offers a unique opportunity to bring the school and community together.
“Starting in February, I’ll have students come begging to be a part of the Prom. They are willing to decorate, find donations, serve food, dance the day away with our students with special needs and then clean up after the fun is over.”
Fun was absolutely had by all. Special education students were served lunch by their peers before hitting the dance floor to show off their best moves.
“My favorite part about the Prom is seeing our kiddos faces light up once they enter the room. This event is all about them and we want each student to feel that. It’s something you can’t explain. You just see it, and know this is something we will never forget,” said Smith.
