St. Bernard Autism Krewe Partners with Schools

Chalmette, LA - The St. Bernard Autism Awareness Krewe presented the St. Bernard Parish School Board with a generous $10,000 check at a recent Board meeting. The Krewe’s partnership with the school district will provide tools to students with sensory needs.

Special Education Supervisor Cheramie Kerth thanked the Krewe’s board members and said, “Thanks to their efforts students with special needs will be provided with an individually designed ‘Sensory Go-Bags.’ Students will carry these bags with them throughout the day - helping ensure that no matter the setting, the child has the tools necessary to be successful.”

Superintendent Doris Voitier also thanked the Krewe and noted that their generous donation will provide over 250 ‘Sensory Go-Bags” to students throughout the parish. She added that this partnership is just another example of how the district and the community are connected.

“This donation and the work the Krewe is doing is just another example of how important our partnerships are for the students of our parish,” she said. “We are able to do all we do because of great community members and partners like the St. Bernard Autism Awareness Krewe.”
