Our 3rd annual White Cane Day Parade was held on Monday, October 16. Students paraded around the school and surrounding community to raise awareness for and celebrate the achievements of the blind and visually impaired community. The parade also included remarks from New York Senator Jamaal Bailey.
Though it was a cloudy and chilly day, that did not discourage students from parading in our community and bringing awareness to white canes and the importance of their safety. It was a huge success and members of the community waved and honked their horns as students passed them by.
The highlight was having Senator Bailey and his team come out to support students by speaking with them, taking pictures and even walking with them on the way back to the school from 233rd street.They also gave out fancy certificates with the names of each student that walked to the district office. Our students were so proud and excited to share pieces of their lives with the outside world!
