Badger teacher Debbie Roland wanted to raise awareness concerning Autism. She found t-shirts that not only reach out to people regarding awareness of the disability but work toward one specific goal for everyone: Be Kind. Shirts were worn on April 2nd by the EEN staff and the front office staff that read, "In a world where you can be anything be kind."

About Autism: The autism spectrum disorder (ASD) refers to a broad range of conditions that can include issues with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication. Many people with autism suffer from depression, anxiety, gastric problems, ADHD and epilepsy.
According to the CDC, in 2018, 1 in 37 boys and 1 in 151 girls were diagnosed with ASD. Autism affects all socio-economic groups. Nearly 2/3 of students ranging in ages from 6 to 15 with autism have been bullied. Knowing this and seeing the shirts this year I feel everyone's goal should be to be kind.

School Wrap-Up Time

The warmer weather has arrived! With that, it brings us to the last few weeks of school. Help your students stay on track with their academics. I encourage conversations with your students about what is going on in their classes and what sorts of projects, as well as preparation for final exams in about a month. As always, encourage them to stay after school in one of our academic labs for extra help or a structured work environment. Do not hesitate to reach out to teachers for any questions you may have. It is in all of our best interest to keep on top of our students in the last four weeks.
Junior Prom

The Junior Class Prom is coming up quickly on Saturday, May 11th at the Abbey Resort in Fontana. This is a great event for students to experience perhaps their first formal event. As a school, we always look forward to this event and seeing our students looking sharp. Please discuss with your students about proper behavior and staying safe. I hope to see many of you at the grand march!
