OCTOBER 2020
Praise the Lord. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
Psalm 106:1
THANK YOU TO OUR CYT STUDENTS!
We have incredible students here at CYT KC! Recently, a group of students presented the proceeds from a series of lemonade stands they organized to help support CYT KC during this challenging time, which were matched by both CYT KC HYPE and T-Mobile, to the CYT KC staff.

We want to say a big thank you for all of their hard work and support!

OCTOBER IS DOWN SYNDROME AWARENESS MONTH
Every child is a gift from God and we all have the desire to belong. To fit in. We all have a purpose. We all have our own unique personality, interests and strengths that we can share with each other.

October is Down syndrome Awareness Month! 

As we take time for all celebrations, we can bring awareness to the capabilities and accomplishments of individuals living with Down syndrome. 

The H.E.A.R.T. (helping to encourage awareness and recognition in theater) program at CYT is an Inclusion program that welcomes students of all abilities. 

The opportunities that are given to all students will make a strong impact of the future of each individual. 

Inclusion opens the door to communication, perception and it is a strong display of respect and recognition of each student. Education in theater provides a secure platform for each student as we build community throughout every opportunity.
