June 9, 2021 -- High School East held its Circle of Friends Celebration Event on Monday, June 7.  During the annual event-- which was not held last year due to the pandemic-- teachers come together to develop and implement a safe, friendly, and welcoming environment that allows special needs students to enjoy a fun day out of the classroom filled with food, music, dancing, a photo booth, and games. High School East's Ashley Fitzgerald plays a huge role in making the event possible, and is assisted by fellow teachers, paras, and other students. That commitment helps make the Circle of Friends event something to remember for students every year, especially this year.
