BIG Thank You!!!

We want to send a big Thank You to Michelle O'Connor-Radcliff and Heidi Graver for chairing Ability Awareness and making this event another amazing day at our school. In addition, thank you to Caroline DeWeese and Amie Butman for their support in making this event a success along with the many volunteers who donated food and their time during the day.  

Because of the hard work of these and volunteers, our students were fortunate enough to meet inspiring people who have overcome challenges. Throughout the week the students also received morning messages and participated in recess events to help them understand how important it is to be kind and welcoming to people who may be different from them.  

This event would not have been possible without the generous donations from our families who participated in the Pancake Breakfast earlier in the school year.  We appreciate your generosity.
