I was on my way to Mr. Logan’s office to chat about the Blue Jays, when something wonderful caught my eye. Our Wall of Service, tucked neatly beside the KCS School Store, was nearly full! I highly recommend stopping by the board and reading some of the bricks on display.
It does not take long to realize the incredibly positive impact that our students are making in their community. There were several cards describing donation drives in lieu of birthday presents. Other students held fundraisers or participated in events that raised thousands of dollars for many worthwhile causes including the devastating forest fire in Fort McMurray, Alberta. I learned that one of our Grade 2 students was recycling batteries specially designed for hearing aids. Another student shared how he and his family stepped in and collected clothing and other necessities when someone they knew needed assistance with family oversees.
Two of our Habits of Mind, Body and Action ask our students to do what is right and strive to make the world a better place. A few minutes at the Wall of Service allowed me to conclude that not only are we on track, but that we are also in good hands.
