Parents, students, staff and families recently gathered to celebrate the announcement of the fifth annual CURO Awards, which is sponsored by the Special Services Advisory Committee. The award recognizes the dedication and commitment of individuals who touch the life of a Littleton Public Schools student with a disability. “CURO” is a Latin word that means “to care for or to pay attention to.”
Parents, students and colleagues chose nominees. The nominators expressed true, heartfelt gratitude through their written comments, such as: “She has a heart to help her kids succeed, even when they no longer believe that they can” and “She looked past our son’s diagnosis and regarded him as an individual with different capabilities and unique potential for success, and he is now thriving without supports in a fully inclusive classroom.” Another parent wrote about their nominee: “She is loving, kind, generous and she gives children like mine the strength to find their voice, no matter how challenging it may be.”
