We would like to invite everyone to our first Unified Basketball game tomorrow, January 5th as we host the team from Hanover starting at 4;00.  In case you are not aware, the Unified Basketball program is run in conjunction with the NHIAA and NH Special Olympics.
We have students from our Special Education program playing alongside some non-disabled students in a fun and reward game of basketball.  I sure it would make their first game of the season special if they see lots of familiar and friendly faces in the crowd.  So you know games are rather brief, most finish within 45 minutes or so.
If you do come I encourage you to make a night of it and stay to watch our Girls program as they host Pelham with the JV game starting right after the Unified Game.
