This 1968 home movie captures Dallas-area schoolchildren participating in a number of activities. First, young girls perform in a dance recital. Then, Notre Dame students take a class field trip to a park, where they enjoy playing in the open fields. Founded in 1963 by the School Sisters of Notre Dame, Notre Dame School serves students with developmental disabilities. Finally, Notre Dame students participate in a Dallas County regional Special Olympics competition. After a marching band-led parade and the lighting of the torch, the athletes compete in track and field contests like a 50-meter dash and tug-o-war. 1968 was likely the first year such an event was held. The First International Special Olympics Summer Games were held in Chicago, Illinois, that summer. Texas would not organize a statewide competition until the following year. The Special Olympics provides year-round training and competitions for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
