On May 18, Meadowood Child Development Center will host a unique movie premier to showcase a ‘first of its kind’ training videos created by Rangeview High School students Abel Negussie and Semhal Abbady and acted by Dalton Elementary students Sasha Garg and Aiden Bojang.

Abel and Semhal wrote, produced, directed and edited the videos that feature a kid spokesperson who helps train a para in sanitation and diapering protocols. Students have earned APS Digital Badges for their collaborative skills. The videos will help APS paraprofessionals meet Colorado state standards. As far as is known, the videos are the first of their kind in Colorado -- especially created by students!
