Almost 1 in 88 people have a form of Autism and a BayCounty elementary school is raising awareness by blowing bubbles.
For the last three years, students and faculty at CedarGroveElementary School have participated in the international event “Blowing Bubbles 4 Autism.”
Cedar Grove is an Autism center with six Autism classes and the school makes it a mission to raise awareness, so for one continuous minute everyone goes outside to blow their bubbles.
Principal Phillip Campbell says he is glad the school is a part of making the world a better place and bringing a bigger picture to it.
“It’s just wonderful and the weather is beautiful for a day like today,” said Campbell. “You want to see the kids smile and the joy in a child’s heart is priceless, so we got to see a lot of that today and I look forward to doing it again next year.”
April is Autism Awareness Month and students all over the world participated in the “Blowing Bubbles 4 Autism” event this year.
