Wear Rainbow on Tuesdays to show Love and Acceptance for People with Autism



Hi LaPerche Families, 






Happy Autism Acceptance Month! Shout out to Mrs. Hayward for putting together this fantastic choice board full of videos, read-alouds, and class activities. 

Autism Choice Board


World News:
In 2011, the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network (ASAN) designated April as “Autism Acceptance Month.” Later, in 2021, the Autism Society made the same shift from Autism Awareness to Autism Acceptance Month. This change has continued among many large organizations that believe in and advocate for helping people with autism lead more fulfilling lives.

“Awareness is knowing that somebody has Autism,” said Christopher Banks, CEO of The Autism Society of America. “Acceptance is when you include a person with autism in your activities.”

Symbols and colors in the Autism World have also been a hot topic for discussion. Over the past few years, the well-known puzzle piece has been viewed negatively. This is because of how society and our perceptions change over time, how others view a situation, and how we adjust the images and messages associated with the things for which awareness should be raised. Changes like these are good because they provide the opportunity to be more inclusive and have images and messages that better resonate with our audiences. There is nothing "wrong" with the puzzle piece, it is just that the Autism community has grown and so has its symbol to a rainbow-colored infinity symbol to represent a spectrum, diversity, and difference.
At LaPerche, we continue to embrace and include those with Autism in our daily activities. Every Tuesday in April, we will show our acceptance by wearing RAINBOW.

Also, our March Inclusion Newsletter is attached to this email.

Screenagers (Mental Health) Screening

Join us on 

Wednesday, April 24, 2024, at 6:00 PM 

for a FREE screening of the film, 

“Screenagers: The Next Chapter”.  

Location: Smithfield High School Auditorium

Millions of young people experience high stress, anxiety, and depression. In Screenagers Next Chapter: Addressing Mental Health in the Digital Age, we follow physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston as she discovers solutions for improved adolescent stress, anxiety, and depression in the digital age.

The 1-hour film will be followed by a brief panel discussion with school and community members.


Who should attend?

Families, teachers, students in grades 8 and up, and community members. Childcare will be provided in the SHS Library by our very own SHS students enrolled in the Teacher Prep Program. 

Watch the trailer and REGISTER HERE


COME EARLY TO DECORATE YOUR OWN BROWNIE! Experience a new twist on a brownie made with local ingredients! Stop by the Smithfield High School Cafeteria at 5:30 PM to grab your treat before the film!


Screenagers Flyer

More information about the film:

Filmmaker and physician Delaney Ruston uses a personal lens and professional eye to help us all flip the script on stress, anxiety, and depression. We follow Delaney as she finds herself at a loss on how to help her own teens as they struggle with their emotional well-being. Ruston sets out to understand these challenges in our current screen-filled society, and how we as parents and schools empower teens to overcome mental health challenges and build emotional agility, communication savvy, and stress resilience.


Interwoven into the stories are surprising insights from brain researchers, psychologists, and thought leaders that reveal evidence-based ways to support mental wellness among our youth. The impact of social media and screen time, in general, is incorporated in topics brought to our attention in Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER, how it may be impacting our teen’s mental health, and what we can do to help support youth in the face of struggles.
