Attucks Middle School to Receive Architectural Structure Designed to Serve Students with Learning Differences and Neurodiversity
— ‘Tween Rock Band Performs Concert Fundraiser To Share Resources –
Mitzvah City Limits, a rock band comprised of four middle school students, will perform for a fundraising event at Betsy’s in Evelyn’s Park, October 1st from 5 pm until closing. This event will kick off Learning Disabilities Awareness Month with the goal to secure a NookPod for Attucks Middle School located in the Sunnyside area of Houston.
The Mitzvah City Limits concert began as the “mitzvah (good deed) project” of Solomon Levin, a recognized 7th grade rock-n-roll drummer and student at The Joy School. His wish is to bring helpful resources found at his own school, to students with similar disabilities in under-served areas.
Solomon set his goal to deliver NookPod, an architecturally designed structure designed with special acoustics, lighting and other elements to address sensitivities associated with neurodiversity and learning disabilities. Both The Joy School & Attucks share populations of students with learning disabilities including dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, anxiety disorders and high-functioning ASD. In addition to schools, the NookPod is also becoming more present in workplaces that employ diverse working populations, making it ideal for meetings and privacy from open-concept work environments.
While the concert is free, Betsy’s at Evelyn’s Park is generously donating 25% of all food and beverage sales to the cause. Expect to hear a mix of tunes from the Rolling Stones, Beatles, Foo Fighters, The Kinks, Hootie & The Blowfish, Greenday and more.
