Preteen Scene

Preteen Scene

Preteen Scene is for children age 8-12 (approximately 3rd – 6th grade) and any siblings that are in that age bracket.  These are NOT drop-off events.  A parent or other responsible adult must attend with the preteen.

PreTeen Scene meets once per month.  Meeting dates and time vary depending on the activity.  Cost is generally $5 per person, with the additional costs subsidized by UPS for DownS.  Detailed information is communicated via the UPS for DownS newsletter, our online calendar or via e-mail.

Can I help my Friend?

Yes! Play with and talk to people with Down syndrome. If they are having trouble playing a game, give them time and a little extra help or ask them what game they would like to play. Be clear in what you are saying. Find out what your friend likes to do. Just hang out together and see what happens. You are more alike than you are different.

Do people with Down syndrome have feelings?

Yes. Just like everyone, people with Down syndrome have feelings. They can feel happy, silly, sad, sorry, or upset - just like you. People with Down syndrome enjoy friends and family and can be hurt when someone teases or makes fun of them - just like you.
