World Down Syndrome Day!


Today our staff and students are rocking our socks in honor of World Down Syndrome Day!  We are wearing fun socks to show acceptance of differences and love for people with Down Syndrome.  One of our students has Down Syndrome and her family donated awesome socks for her class and teachers.  Much of our staff quickly bought the rest of the socks that were available in support!   Rock your socks with us!
