WHERE EVERYONE COUNTS

Giving Back to Our Canadian Heroes

Grade 1 and 2 students created holiday cards for our Canadian Armed Forces members. One of the Grade 1 students saw a story on the local news about men and women who will be away from their families during the holiday season, and shared this with the class. The children in the class decided that they wanted to help. This connects to our core competencies of personal awareness (We can take responsibility to make ethical decisions.), social responsibility (We can take purposeful action to help others.) and communication (We communicate with intention and purpose to help make sense of the world.).
