May 6th was Dress Loud day for Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
On that day, students donate a $1 and dress in their wackiest, loudest, & wildest clothing to support programs for children with hearing loss.
At Avon Public School they have almost thirty students with hearing related issues. The entire school chose to dress is their most wild and wacky clothing to show how much Avon cares. Their goal was to raise $1 for every student in their school (315 students) and they surpassed their goal by raising $489.70 on April 29th.
“Since that date we have raised an additional $160 bringing our grand total to $650.70,” proudly states Brett Melton, Special Education Resource Teacher for Avon. “It was amazing to see students and staff come together in support of this very important cause.”
All funds raised support VOICE for Hearing Impaired Children.
