A huge thank you to everyone for their active participation on Friday's PA Day.

Student Voice: Students with Learning Disabilities

A part of kindness includes acceptance of others for who they are. A great video we planned to use on Friday, is included below. It is from students with learning disabilities, describing to their teachers how they learn and the challenges they face. Our students and children are kinder to others when we take the time to describe how all learners are different, and that students needs are met through differentiation in various ways.
Dear Teachers....

Learning Together, Embracing Differences
