Greenland Elementary School is the recipient of a 2020-21 OPEF grant benefitting all students with the purpose of fostering communication and building inclusivity.
They are excited to be installing two playground communication boards, allowing communication among all students within the school community.
There are two identical boards that will be placed on different parts of the playground to ensure accessibility no matter where students are playing. The signs are four feet by three feet and mirror communication devices students use within the school environment.
The icons were strategically designed to ensure communication across multiple domains: personal needs, emotions, answering questions, and preferred activities.
These signs will continue to foster friendships among all students. Congratulations to grant recipients Sara Pyka, Alyssa Schmitz and Lona Piber.
