E.T. Booth Middle School celebrated its Special Olympics athletes with a heroic sendoff for the CCSD Special Olympics Awareness Games on Friday. The student athletes paraded through campus, where hallways and walkways were lined with cheering students and teachers and the school’s band. The school’s bus was led to River Ridge High School for the Awareness Games by a motorcade of police cruisers, motorcycles and a K9 unit.
“It was a spectacular event that my students will never forget,” special education teacher Lori Salvino said. “The love and pride these students felt today will always be in their hearts. With our CCSD initiative of Social and Emotional Learning, our school knocked it out of the park — so incredibly proud to be an E.T. Booth Falcon!”
