Dancing Wheels made its debut at Beacon Elementary this month. It was a breathtaking program presenting dance and disability-related issues in a fun and informative way. This lecture/ performance has been applauded by educators and children across the country for its sensitivity relating to disability/ accessibility issues as well as its innovative approach to the art of dance. The program utilizes narration, discussion, demonstration, audience participation, and more to explore the diversity of disabilities both in real life situations and in the arts.

Our students came away with a sense of achievement and a greater understanding of the potential within us all.

Ridgewood Elementary School invited all of their English Language Learner (ELL) students and their families to attend an International Flag Dedication Celebration! This year opened with nine new flags flying in the entrance. The new flags represent the different countries from which our ELL students come: Mexico, China, Cambodia, Iraq, Palestine, Senegal, India, Taiwan, and the Philippines. Tara Grove, principal, and Kristin Pease, ELL teacher, planned this event, with several parent helpers. Parents, grandparents, siblings, and even cousins came to support their ELL student and to meet new people. Many family pictures were taken under the flags of their native country. There was international food, a video of all the students, and short presentations by the students telling our audience more about their native countries. There was even an impromptu flag parade, similar to the Olympics! In Hilliard our diversity is our strength; it’s what makes Hilliard students Ready for Tomorrow.
