The Creek Comes Together in Honor of Special Olympics


On September 21st, 2023, Cypress Creek High School held its annual Special Olympics outside in the field for the entire school day. Beaming faces filled the entire field for the fun activities Cypress Creek had to offer. Volunteers from the National Honor Society and other organizations gathered with Coach Craine and various other CCHS staff to set up and help with the different games.

They did such a phenomenal job creating an exhilarating and wonderful experience for kids from every grade level and school around the district. During Special Olympics, the students were put into multiple groups with volunteers and chaperones as their group leaders and shifted from station to station playing the various field games.

The Special Olympics games included various softball related activities such as bat hitting and running stations, ball throwing competitions and many other games such as cornhole for the kids to enjoy and have fun with other fellow classmates, as well as all students getting the chance to receive various awards and recognition for their hard work in playing the games. The students were so collaborative with each other and always cheered and motivated their teammates to work hard and play well. Seeing all the kids get so excited when they got 1st place, 2nd place, and all other awards was so special and their happiness seeing their hard work get recognized was so eye-opening.

The comradery between volunteers and the children was undeniably incredible and it was another fantastic event held by Cypress Creek High School!
