AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH UPDATE!!
It is with great appreciation that we acknowledge the Avon Community and its efforts to raise awareness of Autism during the month of April. Each building managed to create fun and educational activities that not only raised awareness, but also greatly-needed funds for Milestones Autism Resources and Autism Awareness.
During the month of April buildings held staff luncheons, sold glow necklaces, sunglasses, and bracelets, and shared facts through morning announcements about the characteristics of Autism. Buildings “Lit IT Up Blue” on a designated day by dressing in blue in support of Autism Awareness.
As a result of this effort on the part of students, staff and families the Avon Local Schools raised: • $500 TO SPONSOR A LANE AT THE STRIKE IT BIG FOR MILESTONES ON 4/26/2015 • $5846.46 TO SPLIT BETWEEN MILESTONES AUTISM RESOURCES AND AUTISM AWARENESS
These funds will be utilized to fund research, support families, and continue to build awareness.
The Avon Community should be Eagle proud in this demonstration of generosity and compassion!
