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!
