On Friday, March 29, 24 general and special education students participated in the annual CHS springtime ritual of tie dying the t-shirts for CHS, CBK and Myers Elementary Special Olympics participants. Hatboro Horsham High School will host the Special Olympics on Sunday, May 19.
Skills for Life teachers Philip Cohen and Vonnie Gillick collaborated with Math teacher Craig Deiley to teach and support students in the art of tie dye. With two groups twisting and rubber banding shirts, soaking them with two shades of blue and bagging them to dry, the action took about three hours. After 24 hours to dry, the shirts were then taken to CBK for silk screening, which involved Ms. Eva Kaplan's middle school Skills for Life students.
“Students from Skills for Life always look forward to participating in the annual tie dying project for Special Olympics,” said Cohen. "It is a great opportunity for Cheltenham students to develop friendships and collaborate with peers to showcase their creative talents."
