In recognition of Disability Awareness Day, the Viscardi Ambassadors from the Henry Viscardi School recently visited Christina O’Neill’s fifth grade students at Bowling Green Elementary School.

The Viscardi Ambassadors are comprised of boys and girls of different ages, grade levels and hometowns. Their visits are aimed to break down the barriers that exist between the able-bodied world and those with physical challenges. The ambassadors created presentations about their lives, including their interests, disabilities, family lives and experiences at Viscardi. In addition, they encouraged the fifth graders to ask questions about their presentations and lives. The district is proud to welcome these visitors each year.
