SHERBURNE – Students in Dawn Dando’s special education program at Sherburne-Earlville will be experiencing something a little different this weekend. Just one day before the school holds its Junior Prom, Dando’s students will have their own Special Programs Prom.
“Typically this population of students never gets included in anything in regular education, so I came up with the idea to separate and become our own entity,” said Dando.
This is the second year for the Special Programs Prom, and Dando hopes the event will be even more successful than it was last year. Students from BOCES cosmetology class will be helping the students with hair and make-up, and over 30 dresses have been donated to the classroom so far.
