AAC Awareness Month

Wenonah Elementary celebrated Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Awareness Month during October. Led by the building’s speech-language pathologists, students participated in activities to learn about the many different ways in which others communicate while using devices. Students across all grade levels became familiar with core boards, which combine pictures and words of core vocabulary to support communication.

Kindergarten through fifth grade students decorated the halls of Wenonah using sentence strips. They were tasked with using the word “on” to see how many sentences they could create. Kindergarten through second graders filled out “All About Me” sheets using picture symbols. Meanwhile, third through fifth graders played games using only core boards to communicate.

The AAC Awareness Month activities united the entire school community while promoting inclusivity.

Wenonah Elementary School students who completed their summer reading logs on time were celebrated by their principal during “Donuts with Desmond.” Dr. Desmond invited these students to a party at the end of the school day on Sept. 23 in Wenonah’s cafeteria.

Students were all given donuts and even had the opportunity to participate in a donut-eating contest, where they were challenged with eating a donut hanging from a string. In honor of completing their summer reading projects, they were able to take home books and were given spirit banners to wave proudly. Thank you to the Wenonah PTA for sponsoring this event!
