The morning concluded with the students “blowing bubbles” symbolizing the spread of hope, awareness, and acceptance for those who have autism.  The students who participated in the event seemed to have a smile on their face from start to finish.  It was a great morning all around!

“I would like to thank special education teacher, Cristina Carrano and Ashley Tenpenny for their efforts in organizing and orchestrating this fun-filled event as well as Ralph Bernardo and his staff for their assistance and utilization of the recreation center throughout the school year,” said Supervisor of Preschool and School Nurse Lori Kowalski.

“Special thanks to our distinguished guest, Superintendent Edward Grande, for helping make this event possible and for all his support throughout the school year.”

Today 1 in 88 American children are diagnosed with Autism. Autism Awareness Day highlights the growing need, concern, and education about autism and issues within the Autism community.
