Inclusion Week at Stinson Middle School

Stinson held two events to celebrate Inclusion Week by hosting MakerSpace Games and "Just Dance" activities in our library. The library was filled with students sharing in these two events and making connections. Thanks to our Special Education Department and librarian for making these events possible for ALL our students.
