Student Spotlight

Student Spotlight

Abby Duncan is down-right perfect, and she, her classmates, teachers, and family have the t-shirts to prove it! March 21 was World Down Syndrome Day, and while this day is set aside to recognize individuals with Down Syndrome, Kingston Elementary celebrates the amazingness of Abby and others like her every day. She has taught her classmates that their differences and uniqueness are worth celebrating. Abby is adored throughout the school and can’t get down the hall without people stopping to talk to her. Her smile and caring heart have the ability to change people; she has a daily visit from a student whose demeanor changed all because of an encounter with Abby. Here’s hoping we all have that effect on someone and we do everything we can to celebrate what makes our students so wonderful.
