The Final Stretch
Welcome to the Fourth Quarter!
9th Grade Scheduling
Starpoint Middle is ALL IN(CLUSIVE)!
March is Disability Awareness Month. The Middle School used this as an opportunity to educate our students about the importance of acceptance and inclusivity. Each student signed their name on the sign in our lobby and "Choose to Include" bracelets were sold during lunches to not only increase awareness, but also to raise funds for the High School's Unified Sports Program. During the week of March 27-30, students were encouraged to wear colors specific to a disability. A video about that disability was shown each morning to educated the students and staff as well. This year we highlighted Cerebral Palsy (green), ADHD (orange), Down Syndrome (blue and yellow), and Autism (blue).
