HISD Special Olympics Field Day is entering its fourth year in partnership with Houston ISD and Special Olympics. This partnership has created opportunities for students with disabilities to participate in identified Special Olympics sports activities.

The 2017 HISD Special Olympics Field Day will take place on November 13, 14 and 15 at Joe Kelly Butler Stadium.  Opening Ceremonies will begin at 9:00 a.m. and includes the Parade of Athletes, Torch Pass, and the Declaration of Games.

Activities are scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. or directly after the conclusion of Opening Ceremonies. All students will have the opportunity to participate in track and field, basketball, and tennis.  Secondary students will participate in one additional sport: soccer for middle school and flag football high school.

Students (ages 5 to 7) receiving services in Preschoolers Acquiring Learning Skills (PALS) and Skills for Living and Learning (SLL) classes will participate in the Future Stars Area (Tuesday, November 14th). This area is designed to support the students’ development of those motor skills needed to participate in the HISD Special Olympics Field Day events available to students over the age of seven. 

HISD Special Olympics Field Day events will commence by 1:00 pm. Students will be transported by HISD buses back to their schools.
