East Lake Rocks Their Socks!

Thursday, March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day. A day signifying the uniqueness of the 21st chromosome which causes Down Syndrome. The Down Syndrome International encourages friends all over the world to choose activities raising awareness of what Down Syndrome is and how people with Down Syndrome play a vital role in our lives and communities. 
In support of World Down Syndrome Day, East Lake Elementary School recently enrolled in Rock Your Socks: Sock Drop Donation Event. New socks were collected and donated to the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless.
