GGUSD Student Receives Magical Wheelchair Makeover
Parkview Elementary School fifth grade student Kathleen Ha received a magical wheelchair makeover during a school-wide celebration last week. Her new Harry Potter inspired wheelchair costume was designed by Magic Wheelchair, a non-profit organization whose volunteers build epic costumes for children in wheelchairs. 

The designers of Kathleen’s wheelchair costume have experience working in Hollywood on the sets of famous movies and put a lot of care into building a creation that she would like. Parkview students and staff cheered for Kathleen as the Magic Wheelchair volunteers revealed their $1,700 wheelchair costume, complete with make believe creatures straight from Hogwarts including an Occamy, Gryffindor, and glow in the dark paint. Kathleen also received a sorting hat, robe, and wand to make her Halloween costume complete.
