Autism awareness in Norwood
Tuesday, April 17, 2018 - 2:51 pm

Norwood-Norfolk elementary students on April 2 gathered for 'Light It Up Blue for World Autism Awareness Day 2018.' The event 'aims to foster understanding and acceptance for those with autism,' according to a news release from the school. Young supporters, some middle and high school students, Key Club, staff, and administrators wore shirts reading 'In a world where you can be anything... be kind.' All week, students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12 thought of ways to be kind to those that are different. Proceeds from the shirts and Key Club sales, raised over $300 that will go toward funding for St. Lawrence County NYSARC.
