April was Autism Awareness Month, during this month JFK students had the opportunity too participate in a 21st Century activity facilitated by school social worker Ms. Hayes & special education teacher, Mrs. Keller. Participants in this four session activity learned facts about autism spectrum disorder, created posters to promote Autism Awareness Month, watched a movie about Temple Grandin, a world renowned autism activist and professor of animal science. Students also participated in a sensory experience to get a better understanding of what someone who has autism may experience in school. Additionally, participants helped promote the fundraiser “Kids & Coins for Autism” by hanging flyers around the school building. The students at JFK school raised $213.13 for the Autism Speaks foundation with this fundraiser.
