April is autism awareness month. EastView is honoring our fellow students and families who are touched by Autism by launching our own Buddy Bench project. This project is representative of our school’s heart for inclusion and love for all students. Starting this week, students will be given the opportunity to collaborate and design a bench with colors and phrases of their choice. For example, “kindness matters” or “embrace differences”. One design per class will be chosen. Next week, students and teachers will be able to vote on their favorite design. Our very own talented Lisa Ottinger will duplicate the design onto our donated bench to be placed on the pre-k playground. If you have any questions about this project, please contact Mrs. Hartness, Mrs. Darci, or Ms. Kara. We are so excited to have EastView to work as a team to support kindness and inclusion for all students!
