SVVSD celebrates a Unified Day of Champions

A warm, sunny morning welcomed a day of champions for St. Vrain Valley School District at Everly-Montgomery Field in Longmont.

SVVSD staff, teachers and school resource officers, or SROs, were on hand at the athletics field at Longmont High School Friday, to celebrate the district’s Unified sports program, Day of Champions.

Unified sports give students with special needs an opportunity to play football, basketball and other athletic activities with their peers and get coaching and encouragement from partner students.
