EXETER – Kindergarten student Grace Dangora had a change of plans on her list for Santa after learning to use a wheelchair in physical education class.

Grace went home and told her parents that she wanted five wheelchairs for Christmas, one for each of her two brothers, her parents and herself.

“I really wanted wheelchairs for Christmas,” Grace said.

Grace’s request came after a program at Main Street School in which students learned about, and took part in, adaptive sports. Physical Education Teacher Katie McNamara was overjoyed when she heard about Grace’s new list for Santa.

“It was evidence of the positive impact the program had on the students at Main Street School as well as the empathetic and caring community in Exeter,” McNamara said.
