Hearing yelling and the bounce bounce bounce of basketballs in the court floor. Constant encouragement in comments like “Great job!” and “Keep going!” all of this coming from Health and Wellness teacher Holly Kut’s fourth block spending their hour and a half every Friday playing with Special Education students. “Just my fourth blocks come down here every friday. We’ve been doing this since January. So it’s A day B days so it’s every Friday for these kids,” Kut said. The small gym behind the basketball bleachers fills up with the Special Education students and Kut’s fourth block and the basket balls come rolling in.
