Established in 1964, White Cane Safety Day in the United States is celebrated on October 15, and honors the achievements of people who are blind or visually impaired and the important symbol of blindness and tool of independence: the white cane. Honoring this day each year, our students, teachers, and staff come together for fun activities and our White Cane Day Awareness Parade down Pelham Parkway.
This day also provides the opportunity for students to share what their white canes means to them:
