Summer Special Olympics

On a beautiful Thursday morning August 2, over 50 Marlborough students attending full day extended school year programs participated in a Special Olympics field day. The event was an culmination of a summer long partnership between the Marlborough Recreation Department, the Marlborough Public Schools, and Special Olympics.

The day began with welcome remarks from Mayor Vigeant and an opening ceremony that included the reciting of the athlete’s oath by student Kaitlin Vorce. Students then participated in different athletic activities, including a football throw, a soccer ball kick, and batting practice. Following the events, all athletes were recognized for their efforts and received medals from Special Olympics presented by a member of the Marlborough Police Department.

Students, staff, and families enjoyed a pizza party provided by Avida Bank and cooled down on the hot day thanks to an icecream truck provided by Mr. John Ghiloni.


Throughout the day there were visits from many of our students’ family members, as well as district administrators, including Superintendent Bergeron, Business Manager Dias, Human Resources Director Brown, and members of the department of student services and human resources department. We also had many volunteers from Special Olympics that took the time to run all the stations and supervise the events.

We appreciate all the support and hope that this can become a yearly tradition!
