Danvers Public Schools hosted the Eighth Annual Special Olympics Danvers Day Games, on Tuesday May 8th, 2018 at Danvers High Dr. Deering Stadium from 9:30AM to 1:00PM. Students from Danvers and surrounding communities attended.
The Special Olympics is an international organization that changes lives by promoting understanding, acceptance and inclusion between people with and without intellectual disabilities. Founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Special Olympics provides people with intellectual disabilities continuing opportunities to realize their potential, develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and experience joy and friendship.
Thank you to those who joined us in cheering on the students as they competed in various athletic events throughout the day and strove to do their best to achieve their goals.
“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
~~Special Olympics athlete oath~~
Danvers Public Schools thanks all our wonderful teachers for their dedication, commitment and caring!
We captured a few great pictures of our
elementary students reading during literacy week.
“You can find magic wherever you look.
Sit Back and relax, all you need is a book.”

The Credit 4 Life Fair gives over two hundred Danvers High seniors a hands-on lesson in the basics of budgeting. It is a four-hour, thoroughly interactive exercise intended to prepare graduating students for the demands of balancing their income and expenses and making financial decisions that will impact their future. In preparation for the day, seniors explore related topics such as how credit cards work, credit scores, and building a credit history.
Credit 4 life is sponsored by First Ipswich Bank. Kevin Noyes, Vice President, is the lead organizer of the program works closely with Ms. Gadzera of the Danvers High School Business Technology Department.
The goal of the program is to give graduating students a glimpse at the challenges they will face in the
“real world,” reinforce the importance of maintaining good credit, and demonstrate how decisions
will impact their finances.
