Donations sought for special dance
Food, flowers and funds are needed, along with decorations, said teacher Francesca Morrison. She said she already has some pizza lined up, and has lined up students to serve as DJ and portrait photographer.
Sponsored by the school's Unity Club, this year's inclusivity dance is slated for May 25 at the McMinnville Community Center.
The inaurural dance was held in April 2012. Unity Club members invited students who tend to shy away from high school activities, feeling they don't belong.
"It's important that everybody, kids with disabilities and those without, feel accepted," said club member Liz Sweigart.
The Unity Club was founded in 2011, after presentation of "It's Our School, Too," a play about inclusion. Proceeds from the production helped cover the cost of the first dance.
