When Ella Chambers returned to Hazel Grove Elementary School after competing in the Special Olympics, she was given a hero's welcome.
Every member of the student body and faculty was waiting for the third-grader outside, chanting her name, carrying signs and cheering her on. The school didn't share their plan with the Chambers family ahead of time. Ella's sister Audrey, who is a second-grader at Hazel Grove, was just as surprised.
The school's principal said she wanted to make Ella's homecoming feel special. The school, which has 250 students, has been like a home away from home for the Chambers family. What an awesome school!
