La Salle Students Get Chance To Talk With U.S. Olympian

Posted by wlpo on February 12, 2014

What exciting plans do you have coming up?  It’ll be tough to top what some students at Northwest Elementary in La Salle are up to.

Ray Bailey’s fifth grade students will have a half-hour video chat with U.S. Olympic bobsledder Elana Meyers.  Bailey says his class will be one of four in the country talking to Meyers live from the Olympic Village in Russia.

The La Salle students were picked to talk with Meyers thru the non-profit group Classroom Champions.  Several athletes serve as mentors to schools like Northwest that have at least 50 percent of students get free or reduced lunch.
