Stuttgart High School

Students from Stuttgart Elementary, Patch Middle School, and Stuttgart High School competed in the Special Olympics on Friday, May 19 in Ramstein, Germany. The games were held at the South Side Fitness Center. The weather was rainy and cold causing the games to be moved inside the fitness center.

DODEA schools from around Germany competed along with German schools in the area. The students all gave outstanding performances in their events, proudly displaying their ribbons on their chests. The students competed in a variety of games, such as soccer skills, track & field, basketball shooting, and Tug of War.

After the final points were tallied, it was determined Stuttgart High School was the winner! The trophy will remain at Stuttgart High School until next year when the students will defend their championship title.

Congratulations Panthers!
