As stated in a Washington Post article, “parents of special education students have long said their children are left in the lurch once school closes for the summer.” Summer camps across the country are beginning to bring together children with and without disabilities for memorable summer experiences. “The percentage of accredited camps that have tailored service for children with physical or mental disabilities has risen from 9 percent to 13 in the past two years”, states Harriet Gamble, director of communications for the American Camping Association. Having accredited camps that blend children with and without disabilities provides an opportunity for new friendships to form and families to attend camp together.

NCAA athletes work hard physically and mentally on average for 43 ours a week, more than the average American worker, and they do not even get paid. It is time that these workers are compensated for their contributions to college campuses. The NCAA’s argument is that the athletes are just students, but they make the students miss school to travel and play games on national television that brings in more revenue including a nearly $71 million surplus for its 2012 fiscal year, according to an audited financial statement the association released. On average, a full Division 1 scholarship is only worth $25,000 per year, compare that to $71 Million. If school were really that important to the NCAA they would not have their athletes miss class just for a game.

Students can improve their physique using the fitness equipment available now in addition to the proposed swimming pool and indoor track. Emotionally, students can release their anger through weight lifting activities or while running and swimming, transforming it to joy (Caton, P.1). Mentally, students can improve their attitude and work ethic (Caton, P.1). Spiritually, students can prove to themselves that their hard work will pay off (Caton, P.1).
I like, many other student in high school, was given physical education class. The experience in class was not only a bonding experience between my friends and I. Yet also a chance for me to work on my physical fitness. Unlike my other class I was able to jump and run, stretching not only imagination and my limbs.
