Life School Students Participate in Special Olympics

Life School proudly announces the participation of approximately 50 students in this year's Special Olympics. This year marks a special milestone as elementary students participated for the first time since before the pandemic. 

The Special Olympics kicked off on March 6 at Cedar Hill ISD, focusing on developing basketball skills. Students participated in various drills and games designed to foster teamwork, sportsmanship, and a love for the sport. 

Director of Special Education Candace Johnson said, “It was great to see so many athletes having fun with their peers. The students and teachers were excited to have their students participate this year." 

The Special Olympics is crucial to the district’s commitment to creating an inclusive environment for all students. Through participation in various sports and activities, students develop confidence, social skills, and a sense of belonging. 

The students will participate in the next event on April 11 at Waxahachie ISD for track and field.
