Starfire U Visits the Lower School
Starfire U returned to CCDS for a third year to renew friendships and promote awareness of disabilities. Members of Starfire U, a post-secondary opportunity focused on providing relevant educational opportunities for young adults with disabilities, gave speeches focusing on their individual disabilities. From Down Syndrome, to cerebral palsy, to Williams Syndrome, Lower School students learned that people with disabilities are different, yet similar to them in many ways. Through this partnership, our students are learning the values of kindness, respect, and acceptance. We look forward to welcoming Starfire members back to CCDS throughout the school year for different projects.
Starfire has strong ties to CCDS. Many volunteers and board members are CCDS parents or alumni and we are always thrilled to welcome them onto our campus!
