Hispanic Heritage Month Student and Staff Parade

September the 15th through October the 15th is Hispanic Heritage Month. It is our desire to welcome all students and teachers, to be part of an outdoor parade that will take place on October the 15th. Students may wear their parade outfits to school on October 15th or they may bring their clothes to school and change before the parade. Students may also decide to make a poster of the Spanish speaking country of their choice and march in the parade as well. The parade will follow all COVID protocols. This event is for staff and students only. The event will be recorded so that we can share it with all of our families afterwards.

If your child wants to be a participant in the parade, please email Alicia Donovan at Please include your child's first and last name, grade level, teacher name and country that will be showcased in the parade. Ms. Donovan will make sure that your child has all the information needed for the parade. We look forward to celebrating and acknowledging Hispanic Heritage Month in this fun way.

Disability Awareness Month

In 2007, Senate Bill 753 declared October as Disability History and Awareness Month. The bill acknowledged that during our lifetimes, each of us is likely to come into contact with someone who has a disability or we, as individuals, may become disabled ourselves. The bill was intended to "increase public awareness and respect for people with disabilities who comprise a substantial percentage of North Carolina's population, teach future generations that people with disabilities have a rich history and have made valuable contributions throughout North Carolina and the United States, and ensure future generations understand that disability is a natural part of life and that people with disabilities have a right to be treated as individuals above all else..." In fact, it is reported that in North Carolina alone there were 2,521,022 adults with disabilities out of a total population of 10,439,388 (U.S. Census Bureau 2020). In the 2018-2019 school year, there were over 203,000 students with disabilities in the public schools in North Carolina, which is almost 14% of the NC public school student population.

Make sure to follow along every week in October for more facts and resources about increasing access and opportunity for individuals with disabilities:
