Spirit Assembly 12/2/22
Prismatic Magic School-Wide Assembly - 12.7
Butler student, Charlotte F. is a fun, energetic, and vibrant first grader who makes an impact at school each and every day. She also is connected to TEAM Impact, an organization who matches children facing serious illness and disability with college sports teams, creating a long-term, life-changing experience for everyone involved. Charlotte was connected with a softball player from University of Pennsylvania, Madi, and they have had many interactions since their pairing. A gala was held in September where Charlotte’s “teammate,” Madi, was recognized by TEAM Impact as “Teammate of the Year!” because she has really helped Charlotte know what it means to be on a TEAM!
