D64 families, staff and community members are invited to come and cheer for our D64 Special Olympics Team on Sunday, May 5, 2019. Opening ceremonies for the Track and Field Spring Games begin at 8:00 a.m.; competition events begin at 9:00 a.m. outdoors (on/around the track) at Prospect High School, 801 W. Kensington Rd., Mt. Prospect, IL 60056.
This year, D64’s team boasts seven students representing our two middle schools -- Emerson and Lincoln -- along with Field and Roosevelt. District 64 is very excited to offer our students the opportunity to participate and train as a team with their peers as part of the D64 Special Olympics Team. Our focus is not only to improve students’ physical skills, but also teach the athletes about competition, sportsmanship, and teamwork.
Special Olympics is an organization that provides year-round athletic competitions, which encourages the athletes to demonstrate courage, develop physical fitness, and experience joy while sharing their skills. Special Olympics focuses on athletes’ abilities with the goal of fostering a sense of community among the athletes.
Please show your proud support for our D64 team!
