With summer vacation just on the horizon, Houston’s Horizons
Club decided to incorporate some summer fun of their own with their annual
Horizons is a club that connects students apart of the
special needs department with other kids at Houston. Throughout the year, the
group participates in an array of fun bonding activities, from game-show style
get-to-know-you questionnaires to painting Memphis rocks. They even organize a
service project benefitting LeBonheur Care Cart.
All of these activities then culminated in field day.
Students were organized into twelve teams, each having 2-3 special needs
students, and went head-to-head in a variety of games and challenges. They
played tug-of-war, had a water balloon toss, ran a three-legged race, and more
and then ended the day with a popsicle party.
“We had such a fun day with everyone hanging out together
and being so friendly,” said Horizons president Katie Young.
In the end, the Tie-Dye team took home the gold, but all
left feeling like they had won with the amount of fun they had.
