November is Ability Awareness Month
Our student leadership team with the guidance of Mrs. Campos and Ms. Terhune are collaboratively working with The Wheelchair Foundation a nonprofit organization. The Wheelchair Foundation is leading an international effort to create awareness of the needs and abilities of people with physical disabilities to promote the joy of giving, create global friendship, and to deliver a wheelchair to every child, teen and adult in the world who needs but cannot afford one. This is an awesome project that was a huge success last year. Classes became very involved in not just raising money, but also incorporating this project into lots of different academic areas (researching, writing informative papers, letters, counting money in math, etc.). Students learned a lot at the kick-off assembly this morning.
Classes are working together to raise as much money as possible during the month of November. Every $150 earned is one wheelchair made! As a part of our Ability Awareness Month, there will be wheelchairs on campus for students to have the full experience of a different kind of mobility.
Student of the Month Assemblies
Celebrations are key to raising student expectations. Providing students with positive experiences that celebrate their accomplishments are an important part of school. This school year we will have student of the month assemblies on the first Wednesday of each month. Teachers will award two students per class based on the character trait of the month (Aug/Sept: Courage; Oct: Resourcefulness). These celebrations provide opportunities for our parent community to support and be proud of our school. A huge thank you to our PTA for providing funding for this event.
