The National Honor Society, National Junior Honor Society and Life Skills classes at Carle Place Middle/High School worked together to recognize Autism Awareness Month, held in April. Students created posters, informational flyers and ribbons to decorate school hallways and lobby, providing students, staff and visitors with information about autism. As students arrived in the morning for classes, they were handed ribbons and stickers to wear as a show of unity and awareness.

Members of all three groups also prepared and sold delicious goods at a bake sale, with proceeds donated to Autism Speaks, an autism advocacy organization that sponsors autism research and conducts awareness and outreach activities aimed at families, governments and the public. 

Great job to these students for organizing such a worthwhile event!
