On Thursday April 28, Donna and Glenda visited 2nd grade students where Donna spoke to the students in three different groups about living with a disability. The students seemed to enjoy the visit. Most were fascinated with the fact that a handicapped person is able to drive and get around to do things in the community to help others.
In preparation for that visit, the students had read a book the week before called “Princess Poo” about a girl in a wheelchair.
