Exceptional Children Awareness

March 26-30, 2018

March 26-30 is Exceptional Children Awareness Week at East Side. This is a time to bring awareness to and celebrate children with different exceptionalities. Our theme for the week is "Be You- Be Unique!" Students will receive wristbands with the theme and have the chance to answer daily trivia questions for prizes. Here are some links to videos you and your children can watch together to learn about different exceptionalities:
