From the Fort Morgan Times:

Fort Morgan School District students will have a chance to use the Wii video game system for some physical education classes starting soon.

Not every student can play soccer or kickball during physical education due to their disabilities, and the Wii system is helpful for disabled kids to learn eye-hand coordination, balance and using both sides of their bodies, said Tammy Johnson, director of special education, during Monday`s meeting of the Fort Morgan Board of Education.
