The King and Queen of the Court welcomed over 75 students from Spurwink’s three day-treatment school programs for a Renaissance Fair-inspired Field Day in the early fall. Once again, Spurwink’s Occupational Therapy team created a special field day filled with big smiles and laughter. Students made magic potions, sent arrows flying at the archery station, and created their own “Coat of Arms” shields. There was even a “jester” who made larger-than-life bubbles!
Field Day brings together all students and staff from across of Spurwink’s day treatment programs. It’s a day where students, staff, administrators, and volunteers join in activities together. Through advanced planning, accommodations are made for the unique needs of each student. Students are encouraged to participate in any way that feels comfortable and enjoyable. The staff’s dedication and belief that the nature of someone’s unique needs, challenges, or disabilities should not exclude them from their ability to participate in field day created a special and memorable experience for all involved. We are also appreciative of the volunteers who gave of their time and talents to make this day a reality. We’re already looking forward to next year’s event!
