In recognition of April being National Autism Awareness Month, Rocky Point Schools participated in an awareness campaign to promote understanding of the condition.

Students and staff members districtwide kicked off the campaign on April 1 by wearing “genes” and the color blue to school. Additionally, Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School students in Gina Fabian and Jamie Behringer’s class worked diligently during their free time to create pins for Autism awareness month. They distributed them to all the staff members at JAE, who are proudly wearing them for the duration of the month.
