In celebration of Autism Awareness month, students and staff from Grundy Avenue Elementary School joined together to raise awareness and funds for a special cause. 

Throughout the building, students and staff dressed in autism awareness shirts and bracelets that were sold to raise money for the Spectrum of Dreams Foundation. Additionally, students decorated countless creative puzzle pieces that lined the hallways of the building.

During the month, students learned about the autism spectrum as they watched various videos and listened to announcements each day in which a number of prominent role models with autism were highlighted for their outstanding achievements.  

As a culmination to the monthlong initiative, the school presented a $1,025 check to the Spectrum of Dreams Foundation President Tim Szlosek.
