- Builders Club students shared the story of "Spookly the Square Pumpkin" and did an activity with K-2nd grade students. They demonstrated kindness and respect to one another.
The most amazing school wide activity that was done on this month was our Unity Tree.Our Unity Tree is a powerful symbol reminding everyone that bullying can be prevented when we all come together – united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.
- Builders Club students along with the entire school celebrated Unity Day on October 19, 2016. Everyone was encouraged to wear orange and put a STOP to bullying.
Our Unity Tree was an interactive and hands-on activity, a shared experience in which everyone participated. Each person contributed their own unique experiences, creative ideas, and strategies by writing positive messages on leaves. As the number of leaves increased, it created a visual reminder, demonstrating that when we are united, we can create social change.2015-2016 SCHOOL YEAR ACTIVITIESONE TIME ACTIVITIESNATIONAL BULLYING PREVENTION MONTH- In October our Builders Club students read books in the lower grade classrooms about kindness and respect.- They encouraged students to wear the color Orange on Wednesday, October 21st to celebrate UNITY day and put a STOP to bullying.TRICK-OR-TREAT for UNICEF- In October our Builders Club students raised money for UNICEF.
