Fayette Celebrates Exceptional Children’s Week

A celebration of Fayette’s exceptional students will take place March 1-5 in schools throughout the Fayette County Public School System.

The goals of the week are to promote awareness of and interaction with Fayette’s exceptional children, promote community knowledge, understanding and interest, as well as inform students and teachers to the potentialities of exceptional students.

A variety of activities focusing on the theme “Fueling the Road for Success” will take place at all school levels for both students and staff. Participants will learn what it is like to be an exceptional child by participating in activities that will simulate various types of disabilities. The event will also give members of the community an opportunity to evaluate the role they play in the development and support of children with exceptional needs.

A proclamation declaring March 1-5 as Exceptional Children’s Week was presented to the Exceptional Children’s Department during the regular meeting of the Fayette County Board of Education on February 9.
