Thank You, Bear!

St. Albans resident and parent, Lt. Col. Barent Rogers made his last flight in the Vermont Air National Guard F-16 on April 12, 2012.  Part of his flight included a fly-over of St. Albans City Elementary School.  The entire school gathered in the fields to honor one of our local heroes.  Team USA students displayed our flag while the remaining communities formed the message, "Thank You, Bear."

Autism Awareness Fact of the Day

People with autism have no Theory of Mind! They do not understand that other people have beliefs, desires and intentions that are different from theirs.  If they want something, they will take it.  If they know something or are feeling a certain way, they expect that you know what they are thinking or feeling, but don’t understand why you are not, so they can’t/don’t tell you.  They are rule followers and have a hard time bending the rules, and don’t like it when other people bend or break them.
