Melody in Orange, Texas

Mrs. Diamond's 5th Grade Class
Little Cypress Intermediate
United States
Orange, Texas
(Melody #028B0114)
Melody arrived on our last school day...after dismissal. :( BUT we did some things to celebrate her as if she were here while school was still in session; and Mrs. Diamond showed Melody around our school. We have a very accessible school and are even in the process of a project called "Stay and Play"- a playground that will specifically meet the needs of those with special needs, but is open to all. Our class felt like everyone deserves a place to play, and the part in the book where Melody wasn't able to play with others on the playground touched us. We wanted to change that for students at our own school. We think Melody would be proud!
We learned to include everyone regardless of differences and to look for what makes us similar... in the end it is to just feel accepted and loved.
