World Autism Awareness Day is Tuesday, April 2. Due to Summit's spring break, it will be recognized throughout the district on Tuesday, April 9th.
The theme of the day is, "Light It Up Blue," and students in Jefferson's Fifth Grade Buddy Program began to prepare today by making their own t-shirts.
Students in the special education program have fifth grade buddies in Jefferson School that they interact with on a regular basis throughout the school year. The "buddies" helped other students design their own t-shirts.
Throughout the district, on April 9th, teachers and staff can pay $5 to wear blue and support Autism Awareness.
