Frederick Douglass High School Celebrates Inclusive Schools Week

by Kisha Morgan-Dennis

The Department of Special Education at Frederick Douglass High School planned a variety of activities throughout the week in celebration of being an Inclusive School.

Melissa White and Alisha Williams, winners of the Inclusive School's Essay Contest at Douglass High School

Students participated in an Essay Competition, and there were daily “who am I” announcements, which highlighted famous people with disabilities. In addition, on Wednesday Faculty and staff wore Navy Blue in honor of Inclusive Schools, and were treated to hot coffee and Krispy Kreme Donuts.

The week of activities culminated on Friday with our 2nd Annual Inclusive Schools Week Breakfast. During the program the essay competition winners were announced, and they read excerpts from their essay’s. Another one of our students wowed the audience when he recited a personal poem that he wrote while in his collaborative ELA class, and there were several speakers from the district and community, that shared their thoughts on Inclusion!

We were excited to celebrate our students, parents, collaborative teaching teams, community partners, and everyone involved in making FDHS a true Inclusive School!!
