Progress Industries trip teaches Berg students about disabilities
Students at Berg Elementary School have spent the last several weeks learning about people with disabilities, how to embrace and interact with them, and that it’s OK to be different, according to a presentation by staff members to the school board on Monday.
The lessons Principal Jolene Comer and her staff sought to impart culminated on Tuesday afternoon as five second grade classes from Berg took part in a field trip to Progress Industries. As the students arrived, they were treated to a puppet show explaining what they might encounter at PI and how to properly react to it.
Newton Senior High School Student and PI volunteer Micaela Sciarotta, and PI employee Anna Layton, who once attended the tour as a second grader in the district, acted as the puppeteer’s for the “Kids on the Block” puppet show.
