Inclusive Schools Week

This week (12/2 – 12/6), we are celebrating Inclusive Schools Week. During this week, we are celebrating the progress we have made in our schools and communities to welcome all individuals and embrace our differences. Students in grades K-5 will be discussing and writing about how they feel included and students in grades 6 – 12 are invited to participate in a poster contest with their artistic interpretation of “great things happen in inclusive schools” (information about the poster contest was disseminated by the art teachers). Students district-wide will be viewing the film “Ian” with their class. ​Through this film we can see that we are alike in more ways than we are different.
