News from School Counselor Mr. Levine

On Thursday, March 16th, all students at KRS participated in a service project making sensory-friendly vaccine bags. This service project was coordinated by KRS parent Danielle Hall who is the program manager for the Vaccine Education Initiative for the Autism Society of America. All classes received a micro lesson on health equity, and autism awareness before putting together the vaccine bags which contained items such as a fidget spinner, a stress ball, and sunglasses. This picture is of some of the students in Mrs. Sullivan’s 5th-grade class with Mrs. Hall and the sensory bags they assembled.
