World Down Syndrome Day

World Down Syndrome Day is TODAY, TUESDAY MARCH 21st

It is a day to raise awareness of what Down Syndrome is, to help understand what it means to have Down Syndrome, and how people with Down syndrome play a vital role in our lives and communities.

We will be learning about Down Syndrome during our weekly visit to the Discovery Hub, daily announcements and a culminating celebration on Friday March 24th by wearing fun socks or lots of socks to show our support.  Visit https://worlddownsyndromeday.org for more information of Down Syndrome and the #lotsofsocks initiative.

Your participation is appreciated as we continue to foster an inclusive and equitable environment for all of our students.
