Orders must be submitted by Monday, March 18th and proceeds benefit the Down Syndrome Association of Delaware.


"Together we will create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well being of people with Down syndrome in our schools, community and around the world. 3/21, World Down Syndrome Day, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which leads to Down Syndrome."


Garnet Valley School District will be tagging all of our pictures this year with the hashtag #GVRocksSocks. Feel free to share your pictures on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag.
