April is Autism Awareness Month at HCS

Autism Awareness Month
Posted on 04/03/2016

April is Autism Awareness month.   The HCS community is committed to helping raise awareness of and knowledge about autism. HCS is going to kick-off the month on April 4th by asking everyone to wear blue. 

In recognition of this special month, all of the students and staff at HCS will be receiving custom designed autism awareness “dog tags” to add to their Husky necklaces.  The Student Council made special banners that will be displayed throughout the school.  Grade-level appropriate lessons about Autism will be taught by classroom teachers; these lessons will help the students deepen their understanding of Autism.  Students will also be making puzzle-piece magnets that they can display at home in honor of individuals and families affected by autism.

Thank you to our HCS families that have supported this month by donating Light it Up Blue stickers and creating a bulletin board!  We are also appreciative to the parents who will help us make our puzzle-piece magnets!

The district is joining forces to build a Region 10-United team for the Autism Walk at Rentschler Field on Sunday, June 5th.  Please use this link to join or sponsor the team: http://www.autismspeakswalk.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=1150543 The Team name is: R10 United!
