Bree Linhart and Drew Fletcher, shown above and in the pictures below, received a rousing send-off from Onsted Elementary to participate in a Special Olympics event in Adrian. Students lined the hallways and cheered the two athletes on as they made their way from their class to the bus. “the kids really enjoy the Special Olympics,” said their teacher Tara Holm.
“We haven’t been able to participate for a couple of years due to COVID. The kids really missed it and are excited to go this year.”
Holm also noted that the send off is a wonderful experience not only for her two students, but for the entire school. “There is a wonderful sense of inclusion and acceptance in our community,” she said.
