Family Cheer - Stewart Home & School

Family Cheer

Boo’s family cheer has been  a Family Weekend Tradition since Boo enrolled at Stewart Home School in 1984!

Boo was 14 at the time and he and his family had invented the cheer as a way of celebrating their decision to choose Stewart Home School for Boo’s further education. They first performed it for us on the day of Boo’s enrollment- January 2 – and the rest is history!

Boo sang a solo that year in the Spring Play and a Stewart Home School star was born!

At the Bowling Tournament, the entire family came up to the microphone and led us all in their family cheer and it immediately became OUR cheer, too! We still call it the “Cathcart Family Cheer” because that is how it started and that is how it will always be remembered!

Stewart Home & School is one-of-a-kind community.  Most special education programs end at age 21, and then adult settings focus on vocational options and daily living skills.  Stewart Home & School assigns each person with special needs a special education plan in addition to goals for vocational placement, social maturity growth and daily living skills training.  Working together with the student, his/her family and the school faculty, each plan is implemented on a year-round, three-semester basis and schedules are adjusted as needed.
