Sports at Tillotson

 
Over the past several years Tillotson School students in grades 5-12 have had the opportunity to participate in the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Therapeutic League (WPITL) for intramural sports.  We have been able to take part in cheer-leading, basketball, flag football and kickball.    The league is not overly competitive and was set up to allow students of all abilities to participate.  All student athletes who want to be a part of a team can as long as they follow the behavior, attendance and academic standards established for participation.  Playing times are equal for everyone and not based on skill level.  The league has allowed many of our students who have never been a part of a team a great opportunity to do so in a safe environment.  The goals of the league are to promote participation and to teach fair play, team work and good sportsmanship.    One of the great parts of  the program is both practices and games occur during the school day, taking the stress of getting students athletes where they need to be off of the parents.

Virtual Reality

Spotlight News

The Tillotson School Tiger Zone is a creative space that gives our students exposure to all types of technology.  Virtual Reality, 3D Printers, Cricut Machines, iPads, Surface Devices, and a Green Screen production set are just some of the technology tools our students have access to.  Many schools have labeled their spaces as STEM, STEAM, or Makerspace Labs.  The Tiger Zone is similar to all of the above as it constantly evolves with new technologies and experiences.  Here at Tillotson, our students will be prepared to use technology in the workplace and in their everyday lives.  The classroom teachers and Dr. Smith, the Instructional Technology Specialist, work together to design and integrate technology into all curriculum areas making learning engaging for students while giving students some real-world experiences.   Our students become familiar with many different operating system platforms, making them comfortable to work in Microsoft, Mac, and Google environments.  The CREATE club hosted in the Tiger Zone allows students to not only create new experiences and knowledge, but it also allows them to use the 3D Printers and Cricut Machines to create new products for themselves, classmates, and the classrooms here at Tillotson.
