About this Campaign
Circle of Friends is an inclusion program that brings together "students impacted by disability or adversity and their non-disabled peers" to create friendships and interact meaningfully. https://www.circleofriends.org/
The funds for this program will finance 6 circles (2 circles for each of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade) to meet for lunch once each per month. Lunches would be provided for 6 students (3 with special needs and 3 general education same-age peers) and 4 school staff members. During the lunches, students would be given opportunities for form friendships and develop social skills.
Each student would also be provided with a t-shirt to promote their participation as part of the funding.
Looking forward, Circle of Friends would work with the National Organization to open an official chapter at Mickle Middle School to further promote the ideals of the organization. Requesting $1,500 plus cost reimbursement.
