Make A Difference

April 16, 2013

Our project in the Weidner School of Inquiry @PHS 21st Century Communications class was called “ Make A Difference”. We thought that this project would be our chance to actually make a difference. We chose Autism Awareness because we saw the struggle in some of the autistic kids here at our school, and we thought we could learn a little bit more about why autistic kids act the way they do, and why people make fun of them. Even though they look no different than you and me. We never thought our project would actually turn into something, but it did, and we sure are glad we made it this far. The road to get here was so fun, and it’s been so great meeting all these new people involved in trying to make a difference with  Autism Awareness. It’s been amazing having these new experiences and we both enjoy it very much. We’re so glad we chose what we did and that we have actually come this far. We feel like we’ve already made a difference, but we can go so much further.

Krysta Cantero and JoAnna Mendez are freshmen learners in the Weidner School of Inquiry @PHS

Their Autism Awareness poster caught the eye of JESSE transition coordinator, Mrs. Johnna Ramer.  Mrs. Ramer then viewed their Autism PSA and invited them to present it to the JESSE board of directors at their April Meeting.

That was an AMAZING PSA! I am going to show it to my second graders, since we are learning about autism in my classroom. People need to be aware of autism and bullying and you have done a great job helping create that awareness! As a teacher and parent of a child with Asperger’s, thank you, thank you, thank you!!
