Tippecanoe School Corporation
Kindergarten Buddy Walk
Taylor Butcher

All of kindergarten walked to bring awareness for disabilities and inclusion. Lilly Capecci, mother of kindergarten student Eli Capecci, coordinated the event in connection with Down Syndrome of Indiana’s local Buddy Walk. They walked to celebrate our favorite buddy, Eli and baby Gabi, the cousin of kindergarten student Kennedy Moten, who passed away as an infant. Our students wore blue and yellow and brought their spare change to raise $75.62 for Downs Syndrome if Indiana. Our school motto is, “I matter. You matter. We matter. The Mill matters.” Now we add, “Inclusion matters.” It was a sweet morning full of love and acceptance.
