All School Assembly & Gratitude Chain

gratitude chain

Ms. Robinson's 2/3 class led the all school assembly on Thursday, November 19. We shared announcements, shout outs, and songs.

Students in Ms. Richard's 1/2 class shared items they would bring on a long boat trip like the Mayflower trip. Each item was precious to them and included food, pets, blankets, and pillows.

Students in Ms. Robinson's class assembled a gratitude chain. Each link in the chain expresses gratitude. The chain expresses gratitude for many things including family, friends, food, shelter, pets, and school.
