Calls to Action

Autism Awareness

After a unit on opinion writing in their third grade class, students were asked to write a petition about an issue they care about. One student Emilee, who has a little brother with autism, chose autism awareness and shared her petition at the "petition fair" during Autism Awareness Month. Emilee worked hard to collect several signatures from students and teachers in various grades.

This Heart of Autism post tells the story of Selena Vale, a 12-year-old with autism who decided to teach her class about autism, and more about herself, in celebration of Autism Awareness Month! The post is written by Jaclyn Lowdermilk, Selena’s Resource Specialist. Jaclyn met Selena this school year and will never forget all that she has learned from this amazing young lady.
