In honor of April as Autism Awareness Month, students from the National Junior Honor Society, Social Club, Champions of Choice Club and the Siblings with Special Needs Support Group hung blue ribbons and flyers advertising a Kids and Coins for Autism fundraiser at John F. Kennedy Middle School.  As part of the efforts, seventh-grader Kate Clyne donated the blue ribbons and provided Autism Awareness bracelets for all students and staff to wear for the month. Additionally, sxith-grader Lauren O’Brien sold hand-made bracelets to students and staff during lunch periods, raising more than $1,000 for the cause
