Academy Elementary School students and staff members donned colorful mismatched socks in honor of World Down Syndrome Awareness Day to show their support for those with Down syndrome. The mismatched footwear was a symbol that even though people are different, they should be accepted and their differenced celebrated because they are still people.

Additionally, the school collected more than $200 in donations for the Association for Children with Down Syndrome in Plainview. Those who donated were entered into a raffle drawing to win a basket full of colorful socks, which was won by teacher Nicole Greco.
