Dear Members of the J. Turner Hood School Community,
Our students and staff are encouraged to wear BLUE on April 2nd for National Autism Awareness Day! The J. Turner Hood School is participating in the National Light It Up Blue Campaign to promote Autism Awareness on April 2nd. Please show your support by wearing blue to school on April 2nd.
Thanks to a generous donation from one of our Hood School Families each student will receive “Light It Up Blue” sticker and each staff member will receive an autism awareness pin to wear on April 2nd.
Our Student Council will be making announcements throughout the week to educate our students on this topic.
