Twenty-five Johnson County Special Education students participated in a Special Olympics Bowling competition recently in Johnson City, Tennessee. Representing Johnson County High School, Johnson County Middle School and Doe Elementary School, the bowlers practiced in September at the Boone Bowling Center in Boone, North Carolina before making the trek to the competition in October.
Johnson County School System is fortunate to have teachers and teacher assistants who make so many extra efforts to provide enriching experiences for their students that reach beyond the schoolhouse doors, said Paula Norton, Supervisor of Special Education. These Special Olympics opportunities add to our students learning experiences and make memories that last a lifetime.
Coach Nicholas Perkins, JCMS Special Education teacher commended Ms. Paula Norton, Supervisor of Special Education, for her support and encouragement of the students of Johnson County. We were excited to be involved in this, said Perkins. Special Olympics provide our students with an opportunity for fun, fellowship, and self accomplishment.
