ELK GROVE - Each year, students at Jessie Baker School have the opportunity to participate in their version of the Olympic Games at their annual Jessie Baker Games competition. Baker holds the distinction of being the first school in California for students with severe disabilities.

This year, the athletic fun will begin with the Opening Ceremonies and Torch Run on April 27 at 10 a.m. and end on April 29 with an awards ceremony at 10 a.m.

The Baker Games are unique in that everyone who participates wins first place, unlike other athletic competitions.
