Support Princess Estella!!



Estella has been attending the Friends of Down Syndrome Academy since the summer of 2016.  She has truly found a place where she feels she is a part of a school community. She enjoys going to school and attending different school events. Estella and all the students benefit so much from attending the Academy: receive speech services, attend a physical education class, academic classes, social skills, attend a nutrition class, and take a variety of field trips, to name a few. The Academy has reached 78 students and have a waiting list! This speaks volumes! Please support the Friends of Down Syndrome Academy with their mission to continue supporting and providing lifelong opportunities for Estella and her fellow students. Any monetary donation is greatly appreciated! 


Fun Facts about Estella: She enjoys dancing, listening to Selena, watching scary movies, attending Astros baseball games, painting her fingernails, attending church, and having barbeque cookouts with family and friends!
