Forest View teachers and students participated in the second annual Together We Soar Disability and Inclusion Awareness Week March 20-24. Teachers read books about people of all abilities and how students can make everyone feel included in the classroom, on the playground and at lunch. There were also games created, poems written and other in-class activities that explained differences and similarities. Classes also created posters that were displayed all around school that show how much everyone is valued at Forest View.
The Accessible Icon Project of Durham came out and helped us update our handicapped parking icons. Note the active energy of the new symbol and make sure to ask your student why it needed to be changed!
