Spring Begins with a Running, Jumping, Throwing Start

April 24, 2009

It is rare to have a spring on Cape Cod that isn’t a wet, dreary mess until June, but this year we have enjoyed a semblance of one. This spring has brought along the beginning of our Special Olympics track and field season. Coaches Jessica Majewski, Deb Carroll and Danielle Kinder are leading a full squad to the South Sectional Assessment Round on May 2 at Barnstable High School. We have a number of returning team members, but it is even more exciting to see a high number of first time athletes joining the team. Please support our Latham Hawks as they compete against Special Olympians from around the Cape.

Special Olympics is a very important part of life on the Latham campus. It is our goal to involve as many students as possible in Special Olympics because athletics possess so many potential lessons. It is important for all kids, but especially our kids here, to be active, engaged and running around. The staff at Latham are the backbone of the program and the kids would never have all of the wonderful opportunities they have unless it was for the tireless work of our coaching volunteers.
