Students in Mrs. Miller's first grade class at McQuistion Elementary School participated in White Cane Awareness Day in October.
Ms. Jessica Sloan, Intermediate Midwestern Unit IV's vision, orientation and mobility teacher, visited McQuistion to teach students about white canes and how they are used by people who are blind or have vision impairments. Ms. Sloan showed a brief video and helped students make their own white cane key chains. In addition, Ms. Lia Noel, a braille instructor, read a story to students.
One of the students in Mrs. Miller's class is blind. The whole class enjoyed learning about ways they can help their friend.
