Terrell Wells Middle School celebrated the third annual Light it Up Blue for Autism Awareness event on March 31.

The whole school was invited to wear blue and visit the Autism Unit during lunch for good food and good company.

“A lot of the times they see us in the hallways and they get a little nervous or scared so I want them to be more familiar and to see that we are just like them,” Terrell Wells MS Autism Teacher Jamie Teixeira said. “Having something like this makes us feel more like a community.”

Since the initiative began three years ago, Teixeira has seen a lot more acceptance. Dozens of students and staff members showed their support by wearing blue and visiting the autism unit during every lunch.
