Staff and students at Riverton Elementary School cheered on their Special Olympians as they headed to the Cumberland County Area Games at Bonny Eagle Athletic Facilities in Standish on April 29.

The track and field events included wheelchair dash and slalom, walking and running events, softball throws and standing and running long jumps. Athletes received ribbon awards for participation and placement. The proud and smiling faces of the young athletes and their supporters were proof of their accomplishments.

The staff and athletes express thanks to the Riverton PTO and Student Support Services for providing team t-shirts, which everyone wore with pride.  The school is also thankful to the many volunteers, including students from SAD 6, who made the event such a wonderful experience.

Riverton extends its congratulations to all the athletes for their accomplishments and to all the students at the school for their “awesome school spirit.”
