Inclusive Schools Week – December 5th – 9th

Inclusive Schools Week is an annual event sponsored by the Inclusive Schools Network (ISN) and Stetson & Associates, Inc., which is held each year during the first full week in December. Since its inception in 2001, Inclusive Schools Week has celebrated the progress that schools have made in providing a supportive and quality education to an increasingly diverse student population, including students who are marginalized due to disability, gender, socio-economic status, cultural heritage, language preference and other factors. The Week also provides an important opportunity for educators, students and parents to discuss what else needs to be done in order to ensure that their schools continue to improve their ability to successfully educate all children (, 2016).

Everyone Has A Gift
Arcola participated this year with the theme, “Everyone Has a Gift”. All students filled out gift templates highlighting their unique gifts. The gifts were placed in giant gift boxes and are now posted on the Inclusive Schools Week bulletin board, in the front lobby.
