The Adaptive PEP class is for children in grades K-8 with special needs:

Adaptive (Physical Education Program) enhances the quality of life of people with disabilities through exceptional recreational activities. A different activity will be introduced each week focusing on fitness, health, and wellness. Whether it is bicycling, aerobics, basketball, or soccer, those living with disabilities can rebuild their strength and sense of independence while they increase body awareness, build self confidence, learn new life skills, and even make new friends.

The $50 class will be offered on Thursday afternoons, 2:30 – 4:00 pm in the Trottier Middle School gym. It will run from April 12 – May 31st (except for spring, 4/19).
