U.S.A. Team Snowboarder Visits Kindergarten
Olympic fever continues in Kindergarten! This week, students were visited by Team U.S.A. Snowboarder and local 16-year-old Judd Henkes!
Judd shared with the children how hard he works to train to do something he loves. He also motivated students by stressing the importance of practice and persistence.
Judd has been snowboarding since he was 4 years old and trains in Mammoth every year. He hopes to qualify for the 2022 Olympics in China with his best friend (and 2018 gold medalist) Red Gerard!
We are so thankful to him for visiting our students!
