Poland Third Grade Student Featured in Mickey's 90th Spectacular

Quintino DeSantis is a third grader at McKinley Elementary in Poland, and is leaving a big impression with his teachers and classmates.

 

Quintino was born with Down Syndrome and has Immuno Deficiency Disorder. He's been in and out of the hospital three times this year. His nurses nominated him for Make-A-Wish.  In October, Quintino was granted his wish, a trip a Disney World to meet Mickey Mouse and dance with him. 

 

Quintino's story was part of ABC's Mickey's 90th Spectacular. Local media also spent some time with Quintino, his mom and twin sister at McKinley Elementary. His mom said she's thankful for the Poland Local School District, and its commitment to making sure Quintino is getting a high quality education, and being treated like a typical student.
