Dominic Romano and Michael Eastwood-Cardoza show off their medals
On Wednesday, May 8th, 5 high school students and 3 middle school students competed in the Essex County Special Olympics at Brookdale Park. The West Essex School Community showed support for the athletes by wearing special t-shirts and lining the halls of the schools for a “Clap Out” as the athletes left school for the competition. Several schools from Essex County competed in different events at the park. Congratulations to all of our athletes!
