Nearly 180 students throughout the St. Vrain Valley School District gathered at Montgomery Field on Monday for the Unified Day of Champions. For many across the school district, it is the best day of the year because everyone in attendance is fully of joy and is having a great time.

The Unified Day of Champions is a day that provides students of all abilities an opportunity to experience a number of events in a track and field style format, said Chase McBride, executive director of Athletics, Activities, Fine Arts, PE and Health at SVVSD. 

This year’s experience offered an obstacle course, percussion practice, bowling, shuffleboard, cornhole, basketball, tennis, kickball and a fan favorite, the principal dunk tank.

Students get really excited about the chance to dunk their principals into a tub of cold water. Even if the student is unable to hit the target with a ball, they are allowed to run up and push the button to see their principal take a plunge. 

“This end-of-year celebration is one of the district's numerous programs and initiatives that are designed to help students with disabilities feel connected to their schools, build social skills, and foster skills for work success,” stated a news release from SVVSD.
