Middle School Teachers Pied for Autism Awareness

In a delightful twist to traditional fundraising, the Bolles Middle School Bartram Campus came together to pie faculty members to support Tribe Rehabilitation during April’s World Autism Month. The nonprofit provides therapy and community for young children with special needs and their families in Jacksonville.

Representatives from the organization visited the Bartram Campus during convocation on April 8 to discuss how their work makes a difference and help the middle schoolers better understand how their generosity can impact those they serve. Bolles French teacher Danielle Jones also shared her perspective as the mother of an energetic 3-year-old with autism and told the students more about her experience working with the Tribe Rehabilitation team on his development.

Bartram Campus Dean of Students Mindy Kelly then challenged the Bulldogs to participate in a unique fundraiser for the organization in which students donated $1 per ballot to select five teachers who volunteered to be politely pied at the end of the week.

Bolles faculty members Sean Mullings, Michael Fritton, Michael Stephens, Madison Lee and Ashlyn Watson earned the top votes, raising more than $650 for Tribe Rehabilitation. Jones also jumped in to get pied in solidarity with her colleagues!

Thank you to all the students, faculty and staff who got behind the cause and generously demonstrated The Bolles Way! #BollesBartram #BulldogsInspiringGoodness
