SOTX - San Antonio area congratulates the Somerset Independent School District on its inaugural Motor Activities Training Program (MATP) Day! On October 31, students ages 3 to 11 enjoyed a fun-filled day of multi-sensory integration. Several students from the Somerset football team and ROTC assisted MATP students as they rotated through various stations, including cycling, bouncy chair, basketball skills, throwing and catching, noisy box, positioning, trampoline, balance and everyone’s favorite, the ball pit. It was a great experience for the participants and student volunteers.  Special thanks to Somerset I.S.D. and Coach Keith Higginbotham for making the event possible, and all of the Somerset staff and student volunteers that helped make the MATP Day a huge success!
