April is Autism Awareness Month. And, in honor of the month the school’s Special Education department has put together a fundraiser proceeds going to the Autism Society of Tidewater VA.

Students will sell DIY tie-dye shirts for a limited time from, Monday,  April 8 through Thursday, April 11 outside of the cafeteria during one lunch. Puzzle pieces and socks will also be sold the entire month of April.

Special Education teacher Ms. Taylor hopes that celebrating Autism Awareness Month will decrease the stigma of this disorder and that people accept autistic students for who they are, not for their disability.

Sophomore and Special Education student Madison Glenn helped in the creation of all items sold during the month.

“It’s fun to raise awareness and to participate in the activities. I hope raising awareness shows people not to shy away from people with autism” Glenn said.

Items Being Sold

Puzzle Pieces-$1

Puzzle Pieces and Socks-$3

DIY Tie-Dye Shirts-$5
