Chaminade students, led by Diversity Team members, enthusiastically worked and cheered on Special Olympians at an annual track & field event.

Cheerleaders staffed the finish line and long jump pit, parents came, and teachers brought classes to applaud winners.

Chaminade had the privilege Friday, April 4, of hosting the L.A. Unified School District Special Olympics. Athletes from elementary- through high- school grades in the nation’s second-largest school district competed.
