Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals for Class 482

Each year, District 75 holds an Adaptive Physical Education Parade and Sports Day!  This event is specifically for students with disabilities and is very similar to the Special Olympics.  Teams presented banners, a torch was lit to symbolize the beginning of the games and all students received ribbons and medals!  Students in Ms. Torres class (482) were able to compete in games against students from other schools.  Some of the events were the standing long jump, softball throw, and the 50 meter run.  "I'm very proud of my students", said Ms. Torres.  "They showed their ability to physically compete".  Most of the students in her class, received gold, silver and bronze medals!  Congratulations, class 482!
