The Latham Hawks Return Victorious!!!
There is nothing that helps build self esteem, confidence, and social skills better than team athletics. In children services, more than half of our student population participated this weekend in the Massachusetts Special Olympics Winter Games. The Latham Hawks were successful in their pursuit of medals in both competitions for basketball and bowling.
Through the season, which began after the New Year, teams practice once a week. This is an opportunity to build skills in the sport, but also to learn many other skills. Athletics is a critical piece of our therapeutic recreation program and helps our kids on every level. Students are very proud to be a part of the Latham Hawk tradition.
Congratulations to all who participated this weekend and thank you to everyone who supports our teams. Even though the winter season just ended, all on campus know that in a couple of weeks preparations for the upcoming track and fishing team will be underway. Go Latham Hawks!!!
