During the month of March, the district will be participating in its annual Kindness and Inclusion Initiative.
The kick-off will be on Wednesday, March 1st with Spread the Word: Inclusion Day. This day is a national celebration to promote inclusion for all people with differing abilities. To participate, students district-wide will be brainstorming ways to spread kindness and inclusion within our school community. They will also have the opportunity to sign a kindness pledge during their lunch period. See our district kick-off video below!
Tuesday, March 21st students will celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Day. Individuals with Down Syndrome have an extra chromosome. (3 - 21 chromosomes - which is why we celebrate on 3/21). Since chromosomes can look like socks - we will be having a district-wide crazy sock day to raise awareness.
Friday, March 31st will be our district-wide Autism Acceptance celebration. We urge all students and staff to wear rainbow and/or tie-dye to school to celebrate the beauty in the diverse spectrum of the human mind and autism spectrum.
