On May 18, 2018, taking place at the Oak Hills High School stadium, Oak Hills High School hosted the Special Olympics. The Special Olympics is a time where students who have a disability can compete and to have fun and show their athletic abilities.  Students from various schools participated in events where students competing in events were able to pick three guests to come with them and support them. The students competing also got mentored by athletes and helped by volunteers. The Oak Hills High School Digital Design Club made shirts and sold them to support the Special Olympics.

A volunteer from Lime Street Elementary, Vanessa Zecena, stated, “I think it is amazing the amount of support we have gotten is great I know it means the world to the kids it is a great time the kids are having so am I!” 

This is the first time Oak Hills High School hosted such an event. 

Oak Hills High School Principal, Michael Capps explained, “I think the event is amazing. There is a lot of energy and not only is it is a great day for Oak Hills, it is a great day for HUSD (Hesperia Unified School District).”

Principal Capps added, “There is more to come and we would like to continue to host this every year.”

This amazing event put a smile on every kids’ face who were in attendance. The laughter and smiles were proof of such a great time.

Overall it was a great event with promising attendance and participation for next year.
