Loving Sports In His Own Way
Sierra has an athletic program, and they play different sports throughout the year. Christopher doesn’t like to play sports but really enjoyed going out with the students who played just to watch them. His PE teacher noticed his interest and created a special job for him as a “sports manager”. He was able to now attend (and participate in a different way) all practices, all home games, and even traveled on the bus to some of their away games. He was very proud of his job. Christopher loved his school and his school loved him right back.
Even when COVID-19 was upon us, Sierra Schools of San Diego figured it out very quickly. Within a few weeks the kids were online learning, seeing their friends on Zoom, connecting with their teachers and special services, and implementing technology to meet their academic needs. Christopher is excited to Zoom every day because he feels connected to the people that care about him the most outside of his family.
