In honor of World Down Syndrome Day, staff and students throughout the district recently showed their support for individuals with Down syndrome by participating in the “Rock Your Socks” awareness campaign, which asks individuals to wear exciting, colorful socks. 

With assistance from Babylon School District Director of Special Education Lisa Consolo and Babylon Buddy Club Advisors Jaime Harrison and Barbara O’Halloran, the day proved to be a huge success, as large numbers of staff and students participated. In addition to the colorful footwear they sported, the district also collected $600 to be donated to the Association for Children with Down Syndrome, Inc. 

“The Babylon students never cease to amaze me,” said Mrs. Consolo. “The event began as a celebration to increase awareness and celebration of our personal and unique attributes, but, in the end, it was clear that we all have more in common than we have differences.”
