In honor of Autism Awareness Month, Technology HS adopted a pre-k special needs class at Benjamin Franklin school. The classroom teacher Ms. Mendoza from Benjamin Franklin generated a wish list that allowed Technology staff and students to purchase gifts from a website that specializes in products for autistic children. On Friday, April 7th, our school Principal, Mr. Reyes, Community Engagement Specialist Ms. Ballester, School Operation Assistant, Ms. Watson and FACE Senior Manager Mr. Denose joined the classroom for a day of celebration and to drop off the donations. The students welcomed us with a name introduction song and were so excited for all of their gifts.
The trampoline was the biggest hit. The teachers were grateful for the additional resources. And our hearts were full of joy from all the smiles and hugs. “We are Technology!”
