Day of the Dead Classroom Learning
"I learned that Day of the Dead is about happiness, and getting together with family to celebrate people who have passed away," shares Elizabeth Rasi, a 3rd grade student at Lone Pine.  Reflecting on the learning in Señor Johns' Spanish class surrounding Day of the Dead celebrations, Rasi explains, "we did a "See-Think-Wonder" on the board, while looking at pictures of Señor Johns' grandmother who passed away.  It's good for people to celebrate Day of the Dead every year, because it makes them feel good about themselves and other people." Kindergarteners through 4th graders participated in learning experiences oriented toward group inquiry about the holiday in Señor Johns' Spanish classes.  Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday that takes place from October 31 until November 2.

A big thank you to our school community for your amazing support of the district-wide Make a Difference Day effort! 

Our Action Team never rests and is on to their next project. Students viewed the attached video about a 4 year-old boy spreading kindness and love.  They were so inspired by his actions, they decided to try and make a difference too.

Their Goal: to raise $ to help underprivileged children in our surrounding communities stay warm and cozy this winter. Students chose to help Detroit Merit Academy, a charter school in Detroit where 60% of the student population receives free or reduced lunch.

The Action Team will be collecting coins for kindness to achieve this goal. The coin drive will run from Monday 11/12- through Tuesday 11/20. Student may bring in their donations and place them in the supplied buckets in each classroom. Monies will be spent to purchase winter clothing items to donate to Detroit Merit Academy. 

The Action Team has set a school goal to raise $600 for this effort! They will be sponsoring a Crazy for Coins and Kindness Day on Thursday, 11/15. Students may donate $1 and wear crazy socks, crazy hair, crazy mismatched clothes, etc. Thanks for your support!
