SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. -- There was joy in the Sleepy Hollow house today, when the High School celebrated diversity with its annual Spread the Word to End the Word initiative, featuring the SHADE club, Sleepy Hollow Academy for Disability Education, collecting signatures during the day from classmates who pledged not to use the "R" word to describe a disabled person.
The day was capped off by a performance by Flame the Band, a well-known upstate New York band made up of musicians and performers with disabilities.
Students watched an award-winning documentary about the band before the concert. the event was the first in a month-long series of March Kindness events at the school for students and parents.
