Makefield Elementary School - Pennsbury School District
Learning Support teacher, Diana Wurst, writes that March 21st marked the ninth anniversary of World Down Syndrome Day. This year, with the help of their teachers, Makefield students discovered the different ways that kids who have Down syndrome learn and play with their peers. The day started with a school-wide celebration as Principal Donna McCormick-Miller read the book, Taking Down Syndrome to School, on Makefield’s Kid Witness News during the morning announcements. Teachers followed this with in-class presentations that were differentiated by grade level. “A special thanks to the Makefield Special Education Team for coordinating an awesome awareness event,” said Ms. McCormick-Miller. The Philly Pretzel Factory donated over 300 pretzels in the shape of 2’s and 1’s (representing the 21st chromosome) in order to help with fundraising efforts. With additional support from McCaffrey’s food stores and the Barlow family, Makefield Elementary was able to raise $585 that will be donated to AHA (Athletes Helping Athletes), a local organization dedicated to promoting the inclusion of children with special needs.
