MCPS Goes Blue for Autism April 2

Light-it-up-blueEach April 2, Autism Speaks celebrates Light It Up Blue along with the international autism community, in commemoration of the United Nations-sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day.

MCPS school families join the international movement.  We encourage all members of our school families to wear blue jeans or something blue on April 2.

Research varies, but some data suggest Autism now affects 1 in 68 children.

Education and employment are key.  Schools connect children to their communities.  Jobs connect adults to their societies.  Persons with autism deserve to walk the same path.  By including children with different learning abilities … we can change attitudes and promote respect. – United Nations Secretary General, 2014

Please consider wearing blue jeans or something blue on  April 2.

Our buildings are always blue.  So, let’s stand together and Light it up Blue by supporting children with autism by wearing jeans or something blue in this world-wide movement. – Superintendent Eberhardt
