Walk-a-mile 2018

The Walk a Mile for Monarch is an annual event, in which our students walk one mile along the nature trail behind the school on the Foss Campus! There are fun sensory and learning stations along the way for the students to participate in, with their classmates and staff.   Students ask for sponsorships from their family and friends to support the walk. It is always a fun day! Last year’s theme was: “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”

All funds raised at this year’s event are going to support the purchase of a TAPit.   The TAPit is essentially a large touch screen, which can be adjusted easily for height, vision needs, and motor movements. It is portable, and makes educational or vocational instruction, incorporating technology, easily accessible to students of all abilities. When we had a TAPit on loan in the fall, it was very motivating platform for our students to access their lessons.   Check out some more about information the TAPit at: http://teachsmart.org/
