Practice Pays Off at Pius XII

Pius XII Catholic Elementary School Care and Development student, Nicholas Groulx, stands proudly next to his wheelchair as he donates it to Mindy Grant from Motion Specialties, a home health care equipment supporter.

February 27, 2013 - Nicholas Groulx is a student who is currently in the Care and Development classroom at Pius XII Catholic Elementary School. He has multiple disabilities and one of them affects the way he walks. Everyday Nicholas comes to school on a wheelchair, and at school, he practices his walking skills by walking the halls with the assistance of a walker. Just this month, Nicholas has proved that the age old saying that "practice pays off" is indeed true. Pius XII staff and students awarded Nicholas for his huge accomplishment -- he has progressed so well with his walking that he no longer needs the use of his wheelchair or his walker! Nicholas' wheelchair has been donated to Motion Specialties, a home health care equipment supplier. The wheelchair will come in handy for another individual who will require the chair.
