Ability Awareness Week Needs YOU
Sat, Mar 17 8:34am
Frank Otis Elementary
With just over a week to go, we still have a lot of classes that need four volunteers each to run the four ability stations for Ability Awareness Week, March 26th - March 30th. If you have an hour (or two or three), please help out in your child's class and/or another time slot that works for you. HERE's a link to the sign-up sheet. No training necessary. A description of the program and the materials used can be found HERE.

During Ability Awareness Week ("AAW"), students will learn that not everyone has the same abilities that they have. Everyday tasks that seem easy may be a challenge for some of their friends. They'll get to experience what it is like to have a visual impairment, a hearing impairment, or have limited mobility. They'll experience this through fun, interactive ability stations, where they'll get to write or draw in a mirrored box, learn the letters of the alphabet in braille, and try doing certain tasks with socks on their hands. 

This is an entirely volunteer-led program and we need parent help to make AAW a success. Each class will participate during their normal Media Center hours.

 
Thank you,
Mike Webber, AAW Coordinator
