Blindness Awareness Month is in October as is White Cane Day on October 15th. What a better time to celebrate our independence but with a Virtual Walk-A-Thon. We’d like to invite you to join us in our Virtual Walk-A-Thon that will take place from October 19th through the 25Th. You choose the day you will do your Virtual Walk & Roll. Of course if you choose to Walk & Roll with other family members or friends do social distance and remember your mask.
Our St. Joseph’s students have faced many learning challenges since the pandemic, as have our teachers, therapists and let’s not forget our heroic parents. Very quickly the staff had to figure out how to get specialized equipment to our visually-impaired, blind and multiply-disabled students and how to teach remotely. Our staff, in collaboration with our parents, has risen to the challenge to make sure our students continue to thrive.
Starting a fundraiser is easy and fun to do. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference. With your help we can ensure our students' academic success and increased independence.
Don't forget to share your Walk & Roll with us! Tag us on Instagram or Facebook at St. Joseph's School for the Blind and use the hashtag #sjsbwalk, so we can see you celebrate the walk for independence.
