Our school celebrated World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) yesterday (Thursday, March 21, 2019) with students wearing crazy socks for 50 cent donation. Teachers and staff also wore 21-21-21 shirts.
Down Syndrome International says that the 3/21 date for WDSD was chosen because it’s the “21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.”
Down Syndrome International also “encourages our friends all over the world to choose their own activities and events on WDSD to help raise awareness of what Down syndrome is, what it means to have Down syndrome, and how people with Down syndrome play a vital role in our lives and communities.”
Our Mustangs Give Back Club put together this video to help mark this special day …
