BHS attends IMFAR

This year, the International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR) was held in San Francisco, California from May 10th to 13th. As usual, members of the Boston Higashi School were enthusiastically in attendance. Michael Kelly (Executive Director), Deborah Donovan (Principal),  Dr. Ann Roberts (Director of Clinical Services) and Dr. John Maina (Director of Program Research, Evaluation, and Development) spent their time attending presentations and making connections. They had a chance to meet with some wonderful colleagues- old and new!

We welcomed back Daigo Kobayashi from the New England Revolution on Wednesday to join us for some division team soccer matches at the Residence! 

We kicked off the event with Middle School Division, and a game of Red Light / Green Light using soccer balls to practice dribbling skills. Then, the division matches began.

The final standings:

  • Junior High Division (Mark S., Jayson I., Christian G., Derek K. & Timmy H.) was defeated by High School A (BJ S., Cole C., Zack L., Jeremy M., & Brendan W.); 
  • Girls Division (Hope K., Grace F., Helen C., Karina, Kristina & Dyan) dominated over EP Girls Division (Henya, Maeve from the younger girls division, Nicole, Andrea, & Hayley);
  • EP Boys apartments 1&3 (Cameron D., Ben O., Andrew B., Nick B., Pat G.) beat apartments 2&4 (Ethan N, Jack W., Hayato M., Antony G., & Dale L.);
  • Young Adults (TJ B., Ryan D., Jacob D., Patrick C., & Dante G.) triumphed over High School B (Billy C., Austin L., Johnson L., Paul W., & Chris B.)

After the games, students tried their best kicks against Mascot Slyde, and even got autographs from Daigo! Thanks Revs for a great night!
