Fiesta Especial Community-based Instruction Sponsorship
Working with instructors and administrators at both N.E.I.S.D. and Region20, a community-based instruction field trip filled with life skill development, critical skill development and educational materials and resources was created. This experience is coupled with a day of fun in an outdoor setting to stimulate the minds of children in special education programs in our surrounding area. We’ve traditionally had students attend from over 18 different school districts in and around the San Antonio area. We are looking to expand into several of the other districts this year with the improved educational focus.
Almost every school, if not all, has a unit on Fiesta® during the month of April. Fiesta Especial® is an opportunity to bring practical application to classroom lessons in a safe, family-friendly, alcohol and tobacco free environment created for individuals with disabilities. Fiesta Especial® offers activities that are particularly supportive of students with developmental or orthopedic disabilities. Working with teachers to develop curriculum around the event, we identified educational experiences in Social Studies, Math, Science, Reading, Communication, Arts, Life Skill application and Critical Skill development.
Every $35 donation underwrites the cost of one special education student for their free admission, unlimited rides, a complimentary hot dog lunch, educational resources, bus transportation and parking at no expense to the student or their school. Adults from local day habilitation programs also benefit from each donation as we are able to keep Fiesta Especial® free and open for children and adult programs each year.
disABILITYsa, together with your support, is Making Fiesta Especial® Possible:
· Free Admission, unlimited rides and a complimentary Hot Dog lunch
· Educational Materials for students
· Online Teacher’s Resource & Discussion Pages
