Two student-led clubs, Student Council and Westbrook Cares, which are compromised of fifth and sixth grade students, joined forces during the month of April to raise awareness of autism within the student body. These two groups of student leaders organized a fund raiser to support the local agency, United By Autism. The entire student body was enthusiastic to participate when they received a “No Homework Pass” with their $1 donation. The staff and students wore blue on April 2nd, World Autism Day, joining millions around the world in order to raise awareness and increase acceptance of individuals with autism. The students and staff together raised a total of $550. United By Autism thanked the students and staff with several new books and resources about autism for Westbrook’s school library.
