Light it up Blue!

Please Join Us in Celebrating….

Autism Awareness Month

Light it Up Blue

During the month of April Memorial/Griebling students will be involved in a variety of activities that celebrate differences and teach tolerance.  We are hoping that Memorial/ Griebling families will participate in our awareness activities by decorating a blue heart with your family name.  Please design this Heart  blue, or be creative and use other materials to design your own blue heart.  Please write/design your family name in the center of the heart.  We will be wearing blue on Friday’s for the month of April to support Autism Awareness.  Memorial will also have a grade level challenge of “Pennies for POAC” for the month of April.

Each homeroom’s basketballs will be displayed and tallied.   The homeroom with the most responses per grade level will win a class party. The overall winner for each school will win a trophy to display for the remainder of the year!

 

  • This competition is completely voluntary.
