Thank you for your support for the 2018-19 School Year!!

Bob Marley was right: “You can’t find the right roads when the streets are paved”

New Raymer may be a small town quite a distance from Fort Collins, but visiting Prairie School was quite worth the road trip!

 

 

The students, aged Kindergarten to high school Seniors, were all polite, helpful, supportive, and attentive.

Awesome in Action enjoyed presenting to the lower grades (K-5th), using the Spread the Word to End the Word Campaign.

The introduction for Nick, written by 5th grader, Simon, could not have been better! Here Nick is giving Simon “knuckles” after the speech.

 

The older grade kids helped us arrange their beautiful auditorium in order to experience life from Nick’s point of view in the “Walk in My Shoes” presentation

 

The students tried out Nick’s speech device by having conversations with their peers using only the assistive technology.

 

They also read Nick’s book, Helping in Action,  and discussed proper disability etiquette.

 

Finally, the students each tried to get through a door , as well as maneuver around some obstacles, in a manual wheelchair.  Here is our dedicated volunteer, Thalia, giving the wheelchair a try after the presentations.

IMG_9075 A big Thank You to our new friend, Kaitlyn Birdsall, an amazing teacher who makes the drive every day from Fort Collins to teach in New Raymer; and who entertains Nick’s every whim…including providing him with a “Smelling Hotdog” after the presentations.

We loved spending time with all of the students and teachers of Prairie school! Thank you for inviting us to present to your school!
