We were excited to take part in the 28th annual Kennedy Krieger Festival of Trees this year! This is a three day event that takes place at the Maryland State Fair Grounds. Featuring over 700 trees all decorated in its own theme. “Every Light Deserves to Shine” is something that each and every staff and student in our school believe is true, so it was only fitting it would be our trees theme. Every ornament was designed by a special education student at High Road School of Baltimore County. The time and thought that went in to each ornament expresses who they are and the light they see within themselves. All children deserve to be seen for who they are as a person, not the disabilities they may have. The students where so excited about the whole idea. They all took their time and made an ornament special to who they are. Staff volunteered their time and went decorated our tree with the very special ornaments. On November 23 the festival opened where over 10,000 people where able to see the work of our students. It was truly an amazing opportunity & event from start to finish!
