G-D Named Special Olympics Unified Champion School
Congratulations to Groton Dunstable Unified Sports Teams & Coaches for being nationally recognized as a Unified Champion School!
A Special Olympics Unified Champion School has an inclusive school climate and exudes a sense of collaboration, engagement and respect for all members of the student body and staff. A Unified Champion School receiving national banner recognition is one that has demonstrated commitment to inclusion by meeting 10 national standards of excellence. These standards were developed by a national panel of leaders from Special Olympics and the education community.
There are a total of 131 schools across the nation this year that will be recognized as national banner schools. 10 of those schools are in Massachusetts and will receive this prestigious honor! These schools will be the first in Massachusetts to be National Banner Schools. We applaud you for taking it to the next level.
Please join me in congratulating coaches Joyce Bennett, Ann Valacer and Mary Desmond and team members on this prestigious national recognition!
