Saturday was Page School’s annual Autism Awareness Walk. Families gathered for walking laps around the school, bake sale, carnival games and silent auction to benefit children in the community with the disorder. The walk was followed by a special movie at the Bell Theater for families with autistic children. “We get hung up on sports and straight A’s but we need to get hung up on love. This is what’s important,” said Autism Walk director James Blevins.

Students at Page School participated in a poster contest for National Autism Awareness Month. The informational and colorful posters were judged before Saturday’s walk. They will remain on display for the student body to see at the school.
