Spread The Word To End The Word Week

The month of April is just around the corner and April is a month dedicated to several worthy causes including National Autism Aw
areness Month as w
ell as National Youth Violence Prevention Month.
 RBSMS will participate in the “Spread the Word to End the Word” campaign to educate why the R-word (retard/retarded) is hurtful to those with intellectual disabilities and their families. We will have activities during the week of April 2nd (which happens to be World Autism Awareness Day) through April 6th.
