The spirit of the Olympic Movement will roll into Tewksbury, as Trahan Elementary hosts a fun day of games and activities for their students in celebration of Olympic Day.
Trahan’s celebration will take place from 9:20am – 11:20am on June 16.
 “We are excited to take part in Olympic Day and inspire kids in the Trahan School community,” said Matthew Castonguay, Principal. “Trahan Elementary is proud to support the Olympic Movement and encourage children to lead healthy, active lives.”
The Trahan Elementary activity is one of nearly 700 events taking place nationwide between June 14 and July 1. The events, designed to engage youth and promote the ideals of the Olympic movement, feature athlete appearances, student-friendly games, activities, and interactive learning experiences.
Around the world, more than 160 countries take part in the annual celebration. Olympic Day, created in 1948 to commemorate the birth of the modern Olympic Games, focuses on the Olympic values and ideals such as fair play, perseverance, respect and sportsmanship. In the U.S., Olympic Day events range from small gatherings to large, city-wide events.
