Recently the Class of 2019 and the Class of 2021 completed their studies of genetics in science. As a completion to this topic the students teamed together to do some further research on genetic disorders. They put together a poster that highlighted the characteristics of different disorders that are inherited through the genes of one or both parents.
Mrs. Billy, the homeroom teacher for the Class of 2021, brought her daughter Abbey, a Down syndrome child, to school for both classes to meet. She explained about Abby’s life from when they found out she would be a special needs child until the present. While Mrs. Billy was telling Abby’s story, students eagerly took turns holding the very happy and excited Abby. Hopefully, all of the students were able to see the preciousness of every life that God gives to us.
