On Thursday, May 23, North Attleborough students in grades K-12 will compete in their own Special Olympics in honor of the upcoming Paris 2024 Summer Olympics. This event provides the opportunity for student athletes to be agents for inclusion in an environment filled with respect, dignity and advocacy for students with disabilities.

As part of this special event, the day will begin at 9:10 a.m. with a bus parade and a police and fire escort to the North Attleborough Middle and High schools. An opening ceremony will kick off the competition at 9:30 a.m. at the high school’s Raymond Beaupre Field and Dwight Estey Track and Field complex. Students will then compete in a variety of summer Olympic sports, including track and field, martial arts, flag football, gymnastics, archery and more.

Community partners that will be in attendance include the NAPS Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC), Hockomock YMCA, North Attleborough/Plainville Rotary Club, North Attleborough Commission on Disabilities, North Attleborough Community Center, and Pat the Patriot from the New England Patriots.
