Springs School will hold its first Empathy Week to show awareness and acceptance for people with disabilities. Each day, students will show awareness of a different condition. On Monday, March 20th, students are encouraged to wear purple and a helmet for Epilepsy Awareness Day. March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day. Students are invited to wear crazy socks to celebrate. On Wednesday, we will recognize those with Juvenile Diabetes by wearing blue. Autism will be highlighted on Thursday by wearing red. Empathy week culminates on Friday with students wearing their favorite sports jersey as the Special Olympians prepare for their bowling tournament the next day. The week is planned by special education teacher Kristy Lamonda.
