The Stars and Stripes runs an extended school year program in Barberton this summer for students with disabilities and learning difficulty.
Each week they have a different theme that ties into the instruction and therapies that are offered to the students.
This past week was Sports Week and members from the Barberton Football Team, Magics Volleyball Team, and BHS Girls’ Soccer Team volunteered their time to work with the kids. The BHS Student-Athletes organized and ran stations where they taught skills associated with their given sports in adapted formats so that the kids could participate.
The participants and the Barberton HS student-athletes had a great time and there were many smiles and good times had by all involved.
