Building Bridges: Understanding People with Different Abilities

Building Bridges is Back!

When:  February 24th to 28th, 2020
Where:  William E. Cottle Elementary School

Building Bridges is back for its 6th year at Cottle School!  Be a part of this wonderful program that the kids truly look forward to every year.

  • Kindergartners will get an overview of disabilities
  • First Graders will learn about people with sight impairments
  • Second Graders will learn about hearing impairments
  • Third Graders will focus on Autism
  • Fourth Graders will be learning about people with physical disabilities, and
  • Fifth Graders will discuss learning disabilities.

These lessons will be done in each classroom where the children will get the opportunity to participate in hands-on, interactive activities.  Each grade also will also attend an assembly with a wonderful speaker.

We need parent volunteers to make this program a success!!

The time commitment for volunteering is minimal – just 2-3 hours of your time.  You will work with 1 or 2 other parents in a classroom to run the sessions.  Don’t worry!  We provide the script, the materials and we will give you a short training.

Training sessions will be held on February 12, 2020, either at 8:30 am and 7:30 pm in the Cottle Auditorium.  Please plan to attend one session, which lasts 30-45 minutes.

Questions/comments about volunteering may be directed to:  Alona Trinidad (alonasantri@gmail.com) and Charlie Zegers (charlie.zegers@gmail.com)

We are looking forward to another wonderful Building Bridges Week!
