Autism Awareness Month   

Autism now affects one out of every 68 children.  As most of you know, the love of Ms. McAvoy's life, Carter is one of those children.  April is Autism Awareness month and one of the ways that we spread awareness is with the light it up blue initiative.  By replacing the light bulb on your front porch with a blue light bulb, you can assist in raising awareness. You can find these at Home Depot.

Kindergarten will also be hosting a BLUE dress down day on April 2nd The cost is $2 per person.  They will be splitting the proceeds between the Autism Society and the fundraising event for caps and gowns.
