Autism Awareness Month

Community  /  News  /  Parents Ribbon graphic decorated with puzzle peaces.

With April comes spring, and with it new learning and new growth. This month we highlight and celebrate two important groups that are represented within our schools and communities. April is both Autism Awareness Month, as well as Arab American Heritage Month.

For the first two weeks of April, we will focus our shared learning on Autism Awareness and celebration. For the final two weeks of the month, we will highlight Arab Americans and their rich cultural contributions to our nation.

Our Menlo Park Elementary equity team has prepared a short slide deck for the entire District to help us learn more about and better understand Autism, a complex neurological condition that presents itself over a wide spectrum.

Please enjoy their week one presentation and week two presentation highlighting Autism Awareness.
