Autism Awareness Month:

Autism Awareness Bulletin Board at HVE
This beautiful bulletin board made up of Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade student handprints was put up last month in honor of Autism Awareness Month.

Kind Note Shared from a PTO Parent:

Hi Mrs. Walker!
How are you doing?? I've talked to quite a few friends in AR, FL, and AL and I have to say that Buncombe County Schools is doing a fantastic job! Our teachers and administrators are handling this situation with grace and love towards the parents. The app that my child is using - Seesaw - is great!  PERFECT for  her age and skill level.  My other child is enjoying using Google Classroom and seeing his teacher each day on the morning video. They have both had Zoom calls to see and talk with their friends.
You guys are all doing such a great job! Thank you!
