PALMS Choir

Congratulations to PALMS students Talon Falcone, Gabe Freeman, Collin Gallagher, Camryn Ivory, Evan Leister, Hunter Raabe, and Lindsay Ulrey for their participation in the 2019 Bucks County Music Educators Association Choral Festival. These students were selected based on an audition process, and less than 100 students of the over 200 auditioning were selected for the choir. Our PALMS students worked with a renowned conductor for two days prior to their concert, performing with guest Bucks County native Justin Guarini. Thank you to these students for representing the highest degrees of dignity and professionalism— we are proud of you! 

Unified Track Graphic

ATTENTION HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS!

Join Unified Track and Field if you are in 9th to 12th grade! Special Olympics is dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences. Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding. In Unified Sports, teams are made up of people of similar age and ability. That makes practices more fun and games more challenging and exciting for all. Having sport in common is just one more way that preconceptions and false ideas are swept away.
