FES PALSS “Hats off to Autism” is Friday, April 30th! Beginning in the 1970s, Autism Awareness week was a way to raise awareness about autism at a time when the known prevalence of autism was 1 in 2,500 and it was considered an uncommon childhood disorder. Eventually, Autism Awareness month and World Autism Day were established to continue the effort to increase awareness. Fast forward to 2021, and so much has changed about our understanding of autism … If you read autism websites or social media, you will see a shift in thinking from awareness to a next level that encompasses acceptance, understanding, and advocacy. (Excerpt taken from the April START Connecting Newsletter. To read the full article or learn more about autism please visit the START Project website.) Knowing that words matter and striving to increase acceptance, understanding, and advocacy, the FES PALSS team has worked to share autism facts, videos, and friendship bracelets. As we enter our last week of April, we invite all students to wear their favorite hats on Friday, April 30th. The PALSS team is appreciative of any donations that students may wish to make in support of Peer to Peer and our commitment to creating classroom communities where all students belong.

This morning, the United States Department of Agriculture announced that it would extend free breakfast and lunch for all students through the end of the 2022 school year. This is welcome news for our students, our schools and community as the nation continues to recover from the economic, educational and health emergencies of the past year. Today’s announcement helps ensure that kids will continue to have consistent access to the nutrition they need as families and communities continue along the long path of recovery.
This week, the Freeland Learning Center is highlighting one of our kindergarten teachers, Mrs. O’Hora. Although this is her first year teaching in the district, she has already made a positive impact on our learning community. Mrs. O’Hora’s passion for teaching our youngest Falcon’s comes through in all she does for her students. Her warm and caring classroom is a wonderful place for kindergartens to develop their skills and talents. When asked what she finds most rewarding about her position, Mrs. O’Hora said, “One thing I find most rewarding about my job is to see how our classroom community started as a room full of students who did not know each other and turned into the class family that we are now. To see the friendships grow and blossom between students is so amazing!” What she enjoys most about working in the Freeland Community School District is how special and close knit this community is. She feels very supported by the staff members, parents and the many other members of the Freeland community. Thank you Mrs. O’Hora for your dedication to the students and families of the Freeland Learning Center and for all you do for the Freeland Community School District.
