National Unified Champion School Banner Assembly


Ponaganset was chosen as a Unified Champion School by National Special Olympics. We are receiving this award because everyone here at Ponaganset is inclusive of students with disabilities. We do a great job including all students in our academics, clubs, and athletics. To celebrate this award we had a pep rally hosted by ESPN on November 22nd.  Leading up to the pep rally we worked hard planning with four weeks of reaffirming our commitment to RESPECT, UNITY, INCLUSION, and ACCEPTANCE. Tim Shriver, Chairman of Special Olympics; Dennis DeJesus, Special Olympics CEO of Rhode Island; and the Governor of Rhode Island, Gina Raimondo, were all in attendance to celebrate this national recognition.
