Helping Emmy

Our class has become enthralled with supporting Emmy Barr, a young person with Williams Syndrome, in her quest to improve her caramel business. If you would like to help us to support Emmy, you can vote for her here every day until February 17th.

This is Emmy’s video.

The students first used a QR code to navigate to the website, and then made a bookmark so that they could easily go back to the webpage each day.


The students composed an email to the other teachers in the school to ask for their support, and then borrowed iPads from other classes to vote on. Those devices as well.

Today, they planned and made posters and put them up around the school to encourage the older students who have cell phones to vote as well.

  1. Thank you for all the interest and support in helping Emmy. She is so excited to be in a contest and is getting help from people she doesn’t know. Emmy is very excited that your class has taken a great interest in helping get her votes in the contest. She is so excited to be visiting your class. She never thought she would be speaking to anyone about what she does, what she loves to do, and to talk about her disability which is William Syndrome. Thanks again for your hard work and interest.
