C.H.I.L.D. (Children Having Individual Learning Differences) is partnering with the Verona School District for the first Inclusive Schools Week, set for the week of January 23. This year’s theme is “Unity Within Our Community.”

The nonprofit, which was founded to bridge the gap between special education and general education, views the week as an opportunity for educators, students, and parents to come together to celebrate students with all needs and build empathy and understanding. The week-long celebration includes a new theme each day to help students understand what inclusion is and why it’s so important. There will be additional activities happening in all six Verona schools.

The themes are:
Monday – INCLUSION – Blue
Inclusion is involvement and empowerment, where the inherent worth and dignity of all people
are recognized.

Tuesday – NEURODIVERSITY – Red
Neurodiversity is a word used to explain the different and unique ways some people behave,
think, or learn.

Wednesday – ACCEPTANCE – Yellow
Acceptance looks at the things we share and at the strength that is built into diversity of people.

Thursday- KINDNESS – Green
Kindness is being selfless, caring, compassionate, and unconditionally kind. When we offer these
acts to others, we make people feel good, we pass along hope, we promote peace, and we show
the power of kindness. Small acts of kindness make a big difference.

Friday – BELONGING – Rainbow
Belonging means that you feel accepted, included, or a part of something else.
