School Spirit Week: Mismatch/Crazy Hair Day

Today was the third day of School Spirit Week.  We celebrated by wearing mismatched clothes and crazy hair.  We also talked about differences.  We read the book Larf which was a wonderful story about how were are all different and we should celebrate our differences.  To end the day, we had special visitors from the Disability Access Commission.  Mrs. Mazzocca has been blind for the past 20 years due to diabetes and Mrs. Fitze developed Multiple Sclerosis. The children were amazing with Mrs. Fitze's three wheeled hand bike. They both shared with us the fact they consider themselves, "Differently Abled" rather than disabled. Both women encouraged the children to ask questions and were pleased with the thoughtful discussion.
