Nine year old Hiba with Down Syndrone now allowed to attend same school as brother
WORDPRESS MAKES A DIFFERENCE
CHANGE.ORG PETITION UPDATE
Glendale Heights, IL
Apr 22, 2015 — After a 5 hour heated resolution meeting, the school district agreed to send Hiba to her home school of Churchill Elementary in Glen Ellyn beginning in August. Hiba will finally be able to attend school with her little brother!! It took almost 2 months, 14,000 signatures, and $1,800 +, which you all helped us raise. We are so humbled and grateful for everyone’s support. This could not have been possible without you. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us give our daughter a voice and an opportunity to live and work to her highest potential.
By the way, due to safety concerns at her current school, we decided to home school Hiba for the next six weeks (until the end of the current school year). If you or someone you know has experience homeschooling their child in Illinois, we would appreciate any tips, advice, resources you can give us to help us during this next chapter of our lives.
