WIUSD March News & Updates
It's the most wonderful time of the year! World Down Syndrome Day is just a week away and your inbox should be flooded with the most down right beautiful faces imaginable! I don't know about you, but I am ready to open my Facebook to see smiling faces instead of all those negative messages it has been filled with lately! 

There is so much good news this month! We have a St. Patrick's Day Party, a Wine Dinner, an ABLE & employment conference, a community event and save the date for the Annual Easter Egg Hunt! We also have opportunities to volunteer, a Seroogies Candy Fundraiser and much more! So grab a cup of Joe, ignore the snow and soak in the good news!

And when you are done reading, do you have a great pic to share? Please send it to info@wiusd.org so we can help fill the world with extra love in the upcoming weeks! We especially want to see St. Patricks Day and Easter themed photos, teens and adults working a job, kids at school, inclusive situations and of course, baby photos! Make sure you have permission from everyone in a photo before you send it!
