Dana Hills High School to Host Special Olympics Track & Field Event

Spectators Invited to Cheer on Athletes


Dana Hills High School (DHHS) will be welcoming CUSD middle and high school Special Olympians to the Special Olympics track & field event taking place Monday, April 17, 2017. Opening ceremonies begin at 9:45 a.m.


In collaboration with the Special Olympics of Southern California, more than 200 students from six secondary schools have been invited to participate. These students are enrolled in the District’s STEPS (Structured Teaching Educating Prepared Students) classes.


Thirteen classes representing grades 6-12 will compete in the 100-meter dash, relay race, shot put, and long jump events. Additional activities include a cheer clinic, tug-o-war, and a face painting booth coordinated by Dana Hills High School students.


The program’s volunteers are sponsored by the Special Olympics of Southern California, which is also funding student transportation to the event and lunches for the athletes. Both student participation and division victories will be celebrated with award ribbons.


This project is a collective effort among the District administration, Special Olympics, teachers, parent volunteer groups, community clubs, local businesses, DHHS campus leadership, and the DHHS student body including cheerleaders, DHHS Associated Student Union, DHHS Football, the South Orange County School of Arts, the pep squad, track and field teams, and “peer buddies.”


The public is invited to attend and cheer on our athletes.
