Julian Thomas Students Have Lunch with an Olympian


Students in Amy Simon's class at Julian Thomas Elementary School had the opportunity to have lunch with an Olympian! 

Last week, Ms. Simon's former athlete mentor and three-time Olympic medalist Elana Meyers Taylor and 2018 US flag bearer Erin Hamlin were both live from PyeongChang on Skype during Ms. Simon's class. Surprise guest, 2018 medalist Chris Mazdzer, also jumped on the chat, moderated by our own Olympic mentor, Sugar Todd! 

“The kids were thrilled to see her and hear her talking today,” Ms. Simon said. “I even heard a few kids say "I want to be a champion." After the chat, we had one of our best afternoons of learning. Students we're motivated to give it their best.”
