Logan High Grizz Kids do activities for disabled students

The Grizz Kids Club at Logan High brings students with disabilities together with students without disabilities for after school activities that would otherwise not be possible for the disabled students.

Tashina Meaker teaches Special Education and is the club advisor.

“We have a really big peer tutor program here at Logan High School,” said Meaker. “What that program is, is where students throughout the school day, typically developing students, can come and take our class as an elective, where they come in and peer mentor my students.

“So we have a lot of involvement within the school day already.”

She said the after school activities vary.

“We do all kinds of things. We go to movies, we go bowling, we do activities themed around upcoming holidays, we do service activities, really anything that sounds fun to our students we will make it happen. We’ll go to the park, really anything.”

Meaker said a Fun Run-Walk-Roll on Saturday, May 19 generates the club’s funds for the year. Registration for the run is at 8:30 a.m. and the run begins at nine o’clock.
