The Special Education class, taught by Mrs. Ezell, is selling brownies once again to help raise money for the Special Olympics.
“Special Olympics were designed for special needs children all the way through adults, 9 through ninety-nine,” Ezell said. “It’s filled with track and field, bowling, horseshoes, horseback riding, swimming, gymnastics. Anything anybody can do, Special Olympics has that, but it’s completely volunteer.”
Special Olympics has fundraisers year round to help kids travel and participate in the events.
The brownies cost $1 and are sold every Tuesday and Thursday outside of Mrs. Ezell’s room during all three lunches. Other than brownies, other baked goods are sold but have not been planned yet.
And there are other ways to help raise money for Special Olympics.
“We do laundry and we have a tech program where we can do brochures for people or business cards, but we’re not ready for that yet,” Ezell said.
The money raised from the baked goods goes towards Special Olympics.
“We bought all of our t-shirts last year for track and field so the kids didn’t have to, so things like this just come in handy,” Ezell said.
Help support Special Olympics and enjoy some delicious baked goods in the process. Come by Mrs. Ezell’s room Tuesday or Thursday and buy a brownie to help fund Special Olympics and support our Special Education program/students.
