The fourth annual
Alley Oop for Autism will be held after the Chesterton High School varsity
girls basketball team (16-1) plays DAC rival LaPorte HS, at 5:30 p.m.
Friday, Jan. 12, at the CHS gym.
Jessica Evansí special education class will be scrimmaging to promote
community, service, and education in support of autism awareness.
For this yearís
installment--organized by Paul Petro, Evelyn Pabon, Haley Vale, and John
Petro--Evansí class has tie-dyed the tee-shirts which will be worn by the
cheerleaders as well as by the CHS boys and girls varsity teams during
warm-ups. Scrimmagers will take the court through a tunnel formed by
students and a banner made by Bailly Elementary fourth-grade teacher Cris
Petroís class, while the pep band plays on the sideline.
Then, after the
scrimmage, Evansí students will return the favor and form the tunnel for the
CHS boys varsity team (9-3) prior to its 7 p.m. tip-off.
Folks are invited
to attend the Alley Oop for Autism, and information on autism education and
tie-dyed tee-shirts will be available in the lobby. ďAs a community, letís
come out and support the event and demonstrate the Duneland Difference!Ē
