Socks of many colors

April 10, 2019
The Town Crier
Holy Family School students in grades K-8 dressed down on Thursday (March 21) in mismatched socks or clothes to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day. The students proudly showed off fun, colorful, and zany socks to help bring awareness of the special abilities of all people. Eighth grade students used this day as an opportunity to survey the other students on their similarities and differences and their likes and dislikes. Their goal was to show how we are alike in some ways, different in others, but still individually valued and important. Dressed in mismatched scarves and socks, Principal Kathleen Stoops was proud to have her school participate in World Down Syndrome Day.  
'We have the most sensitive and amazing students! Our eighth grade students led this dress down day initiative to help educate our school on the talents and abilities of all people. I'm proud of them for taking strides to help make the world a more educated, better place.'
Eighth grader Nicolette Tsikouris enjoyed taking part in the day. She said it made her think of the quote, 'What makes you different is what makes you beautiful.' She was appreciative of everyone participating in the day. Pictured are Stoops, along with some eighth grade students, Sylvia Tsarnas, Nicolette Tsikouris, Billy DeToro, Stoops, Sophia Graziano, and Dante DeGenova, who wore colorful or mismatched socks to help bring awareness to Down Syndrome.
