Yesterday, Kindergarten spent some time learning about the American flag, symbols of our country, and ways in which they could show respect and love to those who daily sacrifice for our country.
A guest speaker came in and spoke to one of our RWL upper school classes on legislation and how it happens, the affect it has on each of us. Students asked insightful questions as our guest used real world examples of cases on which he has participated.
Tomorrow, the whole school will be participating in “Love Matters Most” an annual event that brings MHA, Centura Health, and the community together in service projects. (Find out more on our Facebook news vlog below)
On any give day, you will find a class involved in learning that takes students into the community or teaches them ways in which they can better affect their community. Isn’t that what we want for our children, future leaders that change the world, kids that don’t just do what’s required of them but look at the needs around them and find ways to make a difference?
By intentionally creating ways for our students to do this on a regular basis, our teachers are modeling and teaching students how to do this. So, if you find your child asking you for ways in which they can help someone today, that’s because we are all working together to make children that think about the world in this way, as citizens of a world that they can affect.
