Students and staff showcased their support for a worthy cause during Hiawatha Elementary School’s inaugural Autism Awareness Walk. 

Throughout the month of April, students celebrated autism awareness by participating in multiple interactive activities during the week leading up to the walk. Students decorated puzzle pieces, wore blue on Thursday and listened to daily facts about autism on the morning announcements each day. A sea of students dressed in blue circled the building in a show of collective support. Each class held a banner that was decorated with puzzle pieces and words of encouragement. 

Moving forward, Hiawatha Elementary plans to make the walk a tradition that continues to raise awareness for the cause.
