Disabilities Awareness Week 2019

Students at BURR will be learning about how it’s like to live with a disability this week during Disability Awareness Week. Through our Arts in Education program, 5th graders were exposed to Cathy Russell’s “Hands that See” program focused on living with blindness. This week 4th graders will receive an inspiring presentation on 3/18 from Rohan Murphy and 3rd graders will get a tutorial on American Sign Language from Commack High School students on 3/20. Here’s what else is new at BURR this week:
