Students Shine at Special Olympics

All the Special Olympics Participants

The rain couldn’t wash away the fun!  On Friday, Special Olympic Athletes and their best buddies enjoyed participating at Special Olympics.  Events included a relay race, football and softball throwing, soccer, the 100 yard dash and an obstacle course.  Each athlete could compete in each event - some even more than once. Many teachers, parents and grandparents braved the cool rain to cheer on their students.  The NMS Student Council organized a festive send off and made a gift for each athlete. Many of our students have been practicing for these events for months and consider Special Olympics - rain or shine - their favorite day of the year! Thank you Mrs. McIntyre, Ms. Stanton and all the NMS staff for making it happen!
