Butterfly Day 2017
September 29, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Butterfly Day was created in memory of Kenadi Jean Weis who suffered a brain injury at birth and lived 5 ½ years faced with many challenges. Although she was non-verbal and confined to a wheelchair she was an inspiration to many people, including ourselves.
Her Pre-K Teacher at Mt. View Elementary, Miss Betty, ensured a truly inclusive environment, designed for children of all abilities to be as involved and independent as possible. Every school day Miss Betty introduced Kenadi to new friends who realized that she liked reading books, painting pictures and swinging at recess… just like them.
The Kenadi Jean Weis Foundation hosts this event to teach children the importance of embracing their own differences and accepting the differences of others.
