Students at Forest Road School in Valley Stream District 30 had their moment to shine as they presented the results of their hard work throughout the year during the Yes, I Can ceremony on May 26.
Global Leaders of Tomorrow in special education classes are empowered to have the mindset that they can overcome any obstacle with the phrase “Yes, I can!” Students are reminded that if they set goals and strive for success, they can accomplish anything. The Yes, I Can ceremony represents the culmination of the many accomplishments that they pushed themselves towards.
The Yes, I Can ceremony was an opportunity for every student to have a moment in the spotlight and share their academic and social-emotional achievements to family members and loved ones in attendance. They shared major goals they worked on, their steps to success and the growth mindset it took for them to be successful this year. Each student was cheered on by their peers and the audience.
Before the ceremony, students also participated in various hands-on activities that reflected the “Yes, I can” attitude, such as changing statements to reflect a growth mindset. They also listened to “The Magical Yet” by Angela DiTerlizzi, which showed students that despite the challenges they will face, there is always a “magical yet” that reminds us to never give up.
