Parent Meeting: The Nora Project Partnership
District 70

District 70 parents are invited to a special meeting about a new partnership, The Nora Project, from 6 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 20 at Rockland School.

This school year, District 70's third- through fifth-graders at Adler Park, Butterfield, Copeland Manor and Rockland, are partnering in a special program expected to create life-long friendships and enriched empathy skills with area students
with physical and emotional disabilities and challenges. The students will participate in a new initiative with The Nora Project where trained District 70 teachers will teach the Nora Project curriculum.

“District 70 is committed to increasing awareness, kindness and empathy among students, while expanding inclusive opportunities for students with disabilities,” said Dr. Chris Otto, District 70’s director of special services. “Seeing commonality in our goals, the D70 Special Services Partnership Project, a committee consisting of District staff and parents, has pursued collaboration with The Nora Project.”

The project’s mission is to teach empathy by sparking friendships between students and their peers with disabilities. Students work together through a variety of resources, discussions, interviews, and classroom play dates. In the end, students compile what they’ve captured to through photographs and videos to create a mini-documentary about each “Nora Friend.”
