Special Olympics

Ms. Morris, Ms. Truss, and their students all enjoyed the Special Olympics hosted on the ASD campus this week. Students competitively participated in running, jumping, and throwing activities. Brittany H. and Connor G. were also present to lend a helping hand. We are so proud of how these students represented Ellis with their positive attitudes. Congratulations!
