On Thursday, May 3, Mrs. Sara Simasek’s students participated in the Southern Chester County Special Olympics. The weather was picture-perfect as the Kennett Consolidated School District’s Olympians boarded the bus wearing their T-shirts and excited smiles. At the event, the students ran 100 meters, threw tennis balls for distance, and participated in the long jump. As they had practiced, they cheered to support their fellow athletes. Each student proudly received a ribbon after each event amidst the applause of families, teachers, and peers. The students represented Bancroft Elementary School with pride by being the best they could be at the Special Olympics!
