    D.A.T.E. Program

    February 22, 2017
    Recently, our fifth-grade students had the pleasure of attending a presentation offered by DATE, Disability Awareness Through Education. The three gentlemen that presented did a wonderful job telling their stories and making our students feel comfortable. Students learned that while the presenters' disabilities come with their own set of challenges, they can still live their lives and not let their disabilities hold them back from doing the things they love.
