When @RESPEVT first started planning this event I don’t think either of us were sure what to expect. We knew it would be great, but I don’t think we knew how great. This is one of those events where the playing field is leveled…everyone can access this at a level that makes it fun, competitive and amazing. I saw students show a level of confidence unseen in the past, families laughing and working together, educators from surrounding schools smiling and having a great time…all of it…just amazing. It made me think a lot about the opportunities we have students and how we can work to level the accessibility and open up our communities to experiential success!
I think this is just the beginning of our work in bringing events and experiences like this to our scholars. Just amazing in every way and a very exciting way to celebrate the weekend!
Oh, and I also thought it was important to include the bonus footage. Showing our educators being themselves and having fun is just invaluable as an organization and a community!
