Pawhuska Schools celebrate diversity

Pawhuska Public Schools have spent two weeks celebrating diversity. In those two weeks, they were able to recognize two national awareness days. The first day was National Down Syndrome Awareness Day.

The actual day for Down Syndrome Awareness was March 21, but the school celebrated on March 26. The students were asked to wear crazy socks to school on that day and awareness ribbons were sold. Staff sold a total of 210 ribbons for National Down Syndrome Awareness Day.

Last week, on April 2, the schools recognized National Autism Awareness Day by wearing blue. The elementary and Indian Camp offices, as well as the High School Leadership Class, sold 221 Autism Awareness ribbons.

The school raised $215 after a rough count. The money will be donated to Pawhuska Special Olympics.
