Jack W. Harmon Elementary School celebrated what makes us special and unique with our annual Differences Week from Sept. 28. through Oct. 2. Each day, students were encouraged to dress in a color that supports awareness of different challenges some students face. This year, Harmon highlighted autism spectrum disorders, attention-deficit disorder, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy and sensory issues. Students had an opportunity to learn about these differences and participate in activities that help them better understand how students with these unique challenges may learn differently.
