A visit to Roslyn High School
Click below for Press Release by Roslyn High School
This is the second (successful) year that Ms. Kinshasa Allen, along with Roslyn High students coordinated a new program called "Reconnect Day". The initial goal was to raise awareness about being an "upstander", and embracing diversity. This year the project expanded and discussed: school safety, inclusion, while also promoting self-care and wellness.
Alexander's Angels, returned to Roslyn High School (we visited in 2017) to participate in this year's project. Represented by its president, Esther Gomez-Nieto, Alexander's Angels invited self-advocates Kyle Erickson, Co-President of Alexander's Angels Youth/Self-Advocates Group, Brittany Schiavone, founder of Brittany's Baskets of Hope, and John Cronin, founder of John's Crazy Socks.
