Los Cerros Builds R-Word Awareness Into Tournament

We love working with Los Cerros Middle School! Not only do the students (AND teachers AND administrators) take the Polar Plunge, but they also volunteer and host a Schools Partnership Program competition (click here to read about Los Cerros hosting last year)!

When Los Cerros hosted basketball, the Panthers included a Spread the Word to End the Word campaign into their hosting duties. Teaching students of all abilities why it’s important NOT to use the word retard is great at any campus because it builds respect. It also helps open minds as a school prepares to host students receiving special education services for a sporting event.

Thanks Los Cerros! If you’re interested in having your entire school take the pledge to end the r-word, email HeatherJ at SONC dot org.
