Olympic spirit filled the air at Emerson Community Charter on February 9 as the school held a Ready, Set, Gold! Olympic Day.
The event coincided with the Opening Ceremonies of the actual Winter Olympics, which were held that same day in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
On hand for the festivities were RSG! Olympians Roberta Belle, Rosalyn Clark, John Moffett and Paralympian Breanna Clark.
The group of athletes educated the students about the Olympics and talked about their individual experiences competing on the world stage.
John said, “Each time we’re there the entire school does the Pledge of Allegiance over the loudspeaker. But there isn’t an American flag displayed in the gym so we brought an Olympic Rings flag and an American flag as a gift.”
