Autism Awareness Month at Stimson

May-Web-ST--Autism-Awareness-Month.jpg

The United States recognizes April as a special opportunity to educate the public about Autism and issues within the Autism community.   In support of people with Autism, the faculty and staff of Stimson Middle School made a donation to this great cause.  We were able to raise $400 for Autism Speaks and spread awareness by wearing Autism Awareness T-shirts every Wednesday of April. 

With the organization of this fundraiser by Stimson Middle School Special Education Teacher Justin Gravina, over 80 employees proudly displayed their support during the month of April.  There was a tremendous amount of interest from the students regarding the Autism T-shirts leading to informative class discussions.  Next year we would like to expand this opportunity to the students.
