Bloomingdale students will gather with their parents and peers to learn about disabilities that may affect their classmates and treating each other with respect during a celebration of the district's "Day of Acceptance."
The event, which will be held on Feb. 26 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Samuel R. Donald School gym, hopes to encourage students who have disabilities to embrace who they are, educate others about disabilities and empower all students to reach their goals in life, according to a press release.
"Both day and evening activities are planned to reach students and adults alike so that we can be united in this important mission," the release said.
Students will experience simulation stations during the day to catch a glimpse of what it is like to have a disability. At night, their parents are invited to join in activities as well with interactive stations set up around the gym.
Teachers from throughout the district are helping to organize the day's events, as well as middle school students who volunteer with the CHAT group.
