On Wednesday a national initiative called "Spread the Word to End the Word" will take place. This initiative began three years ago and its goal is to educate people to stop using the word "retarded" and begin to use more respectful, people first language and create an environment of acceptance.
In collaboration with Mrs. McQueen's class some 4th graders at Avona Elementary made a video to help educate students about this initiative and being respectful.
Take a moment to watch the video and then sign the pledge.
