Bowling Green Elementary School welcomed special guests on November 28 when the Viscardi Ambassadors discussed disability awareness. As members of the Henry Viscardi School, a state-supported special education school in Searingtown that serves disabled students from pre-K through high school, the speakers gave their East Meadow peers a glimpse at their daily lives. 

While visiting classrooms, the Viscardi Ambassadors shared information such as their interests, dreams, families and experiences as well as details about their disabilities. The interactive sessions encouraged students and teachers to ask questions about the presenters, the challenges they face and the programs and settings at Viscardi School. 

The Viscardi Ambassadors is a club that presents to elementary, middle and high schools, as well as colleges and businesses. The club is comprised of boys and girls of different ages, grade levels, hometowns and disabilities. The aim of the presentations is to aid in breaking down the barriers that exist between the able-bodied world and those that are physically challenged. 

Bowling Green thanks the Viscardi Ambassadors for visiting our school and showcasing the great happening at Viscardi.
