I am sitting here reading your post and I have a big smile on my face. It sounds like you have some great kids at your school.

Sounds like a fun time Cindercat. I used to work in high school and we took our kids to the homecoming dance as well as having them participate in the week's activities. It is so important that all kids with special needs get the chance to not only learn in relation to their typical peers, but to also have fun in relation to their peers. I am smiling after reading your post. It is wonderful to know that there are those with a passion to provide fun for all. God Bless You!

Fantastic, CinderCat! Given the chance, most kids will show compassion and empathy for their peers with special needs.

The last thing that made me smile. Well several friends who rush to my aide when I need it. And the thought of dinner out with all my kids and grandkids tomorrow. WOW I'm one lucky girl.

A close friend of mine became a grand-mom this week. She is so up for it, so happy, but being sensible as well. I'm just so happy for her!

Cindercat, that story moved me to happy tears. Those small gestures (to them) that the other kids made are huge to you and yours.
