Laredo, Texas-United ISD: Today, Webb County Attorney Marco Montemayor read the official proclamation for World Down Syndrome Month at Fasken Elementary.  October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month, a chance to spread awareness. During the month of October, we celebrate people with Down syndrome and make people aware of their abilities and accomplishments. It’s not about celebrating disabilities, it’s about celebrating abilities.  Understanding the issues those with Down Syndrome face in everyday life, and recognizing the steps people can take to help them realize their full potential can make a real difference in enriching their lives.  Fasken Elementary Students showcased their talents through song and dance.  In attendance to support our Dragon stars were student peers, proud parents, and staff.  To conclude, balloons were released by the students symbolizing hope, freedom, love, and unity.
