Light It Up Blue for Autism Awareness

What is World Autism Awareness Day and Light It Up Blue?

World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD), celebrated each year on April 2, was adopted by the United Nations in 2007 to shine a bright light on autism as a growing global health crisis. Autism is one of only three health issues to be recognized with its own day by the United Nations. WAAD activities increase world knowledge of autism and impart information about the importance of early diagnosis and early intervention. Additionally, WAAD celebrates the unique talents and skills of persons with autism around the world.

On World Autism Awareness Day, Autism Speaks celebrates its international Light It Up Blue Campaign. Thousands of iconic landmarks, communities, businesses and homes across the globe unite by shining bright blue lights in honor of the millions of individuals and families around the world affected by autism. At SCC students were encouraged to wear blue to support our students with autism.

Here are some facts about Autism:

-  Autism now affects 1 in 68 children and 1 in 42 boys
-  Autism prevalence figures are growing
-  Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disorder in the U.S.
-  Autism costs a family $60,000 a year on average
-  Boys are nearly five times more likely than girls to have autism
-  There is no medical detection or cure for autism

New Drums for the Music Room

New Drums

Thank you to Mr. Rohde for purchasing drums for the music room through the “Art to Remember” fundraiser. Thank you to students and families for making the “Art to Remember” fundraiser a success. Mr. Rohde has generously purchased four drums from Uganda for the music room. The drums were made by artist/musician Sam Okello who has previously shared music from Uganda with our elementary students. All students will enjoy these handmade drums for many years to come!

Celebrate Reading

ES Readers

National Education Association's Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2nd; the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. The kindergarten classes take this week to focus on a few of the 40-plus books Dr. Seuss wrote. This week is extra special because we are celebrating the reading and writing kindergarten students have completed so far this school year. This week’s celebration of Dr. Seuss is just a slice of the literacy-rich activities we are engaged in throughout the year. If you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or a family friend of a kindergartener, ask them to read to you. You will be amazed at these young readers! “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” - Dr. Seuss

Kindergarten through fifth grade students will be using standards-based grading in order to help students, teachers, and parents better understand the needs and strengths of each child in relation to the Common Core State Standards. The staff at SCC believes that standards-based grading will celebrate the strengths and support the challenges of all students.
