And in Bayonne …. 

Yesterday, children from Bayonne elementary schools blew bubbles to raise awareness of autism.

“Autism can be compared to living inside a bubble as it is often difficult for individuals affected by the disorder to express themselves and relate to their peers,” Bayonne schools superintendent Patricia McGeehan said in a flyer for the city-wide event.

“The idea behind the bubble-blowing concept is to burst those bubbles and bring acceptance and awareness to the disorder through education.”

The school recently held two fundraisers for autism organizations, according to 7th grade math teacher Sheila Najmi. In one drive earlier this month, students and teachers donated money to the Simpson Baber Foundation for the Autistic.

On another day, students came to school wearing “autism awareness colors” such as blue, green, red and yellow, Najmi said. Money was also collected on that day to be donated to the nonprofit organization, Autism Speaks.

The “Bubbles 4 Autism Day” in Bayonne’s school district was sponsored by the Simpson Baber Foundation for the Autistic in celebration of National Autism Awareness Month.
