We are celebrating Everybody Counts Week March 2-6, 2020. Everybody Counts Week is an interactive and educational awareness program that is designed to allow our students to experience both the feelings and challenges of the diverse groups of people within our community and foster awareness and understanding of people of all abilities. It is our prayer that each student will walk away from this week knowing God has purposefully designed each of us and has blessed us with unique gifts that we can use to glorify Him.
The focus of Everybody Counts Week this year is Down syndrome. We are so fortunate this year to have actor, David Desanctis, coming to speak to our students. David, cast as Produce in the movie Where Hope Grows, was the first actor with Down syndrome to play a leading role in an English-language feature film. We can’t wait for our students to meet him!
The following is a breakdown of grades, dates, and times of each speaker. Parents are invited, and encouraged, to attend the presentations!
