It’s not that hard to show kindness to people we meet, especially to those who need a little bit of extra love and care.

During her visits to the Life Skills class, she made a friend named Noah Heichelbech who is a disabled student.

Upcoming Event


Sydney knew that Noah’s sociable and outgoing character would have so much fun at prom, so she thought of a great idea for him.

The Plan

Sydney discussed the plan with her boyfriend, Logan, that they would go to prom with two special dates that year – Sydney would take Noah with her, while Logan would take another disabled student named Harley.

The Promposal

To ask Noah to be her date, Sydney took a softball and wrote a message on it. She gave it to Noah and helped him read the message that said, “Can I steal you for prom?” to which Noah answered, “Yes, you can!”

Pink Roses


On the other hand, Logan brought Harley her favorite pink roses, and had a sweet message for her that said, “I’d be blooming happy if you said yes to prom.”
