At the end of March, students in Lauren Higgins’ class at Academy Street Elementary School celebrated World Down Syndrome Day to promote awareness and acceptance of those with the developmental disability. They participated in the “rock your socks” initiative, in which each student sported two differently patterned socks to represent that differences should be celebrated. The class also welcomed two visitors with Down syndrome and engaged in a dance party and an interview with them. Higgins’ students greatly enjoyed the day’s programming and learned to be more accepting of others and to look for common ground despite differences.
