The Red Glasses Movement

On January 6th, 2023, the middle school and high school hosted an assembly to honor The Red Glasses Movement.

The Red Glasses Movement was started in honor of a very special 5-year old girl, Audrey Jandernoa, who passed away in 2018. Audrey was born with Down syndrome and a congenital heart defect, but these were not things that defined her.

Audrey was defined by her bright Red Glasses, her contagious smile, and her lack of inhibitions. She went through life like a little bulldozer, pushing her way through every door possible to achieve her goals again and again. She had a way of loving indiscriminately and without restrictions. She was a shining example of love, kindness, and courage in this world.

The goal of the movement is to let the Red Glasses remind you to act on your passion and pursue your goals no matter how big or small. During the assembly, all students and staff members received a pair of red glasses and were asked to sign a banner to show their commitment to "Live boldly. Love big. Pass it on.".
