On the Friday before Thanksgiving Break, the entire seventh grade went on a walk around the Western Promenade. One by one, walking separately, students slowly and silently walked around the loop and contemplated something that they are grateful for in their lives. When they returned each student individually shared their gratitudes with a teacher.
In other moments of gratitude, our entire community gathered to present 2,289 pounds of food to the Board Chair of Wayside Food Services, John Leeming. We shared words of thanks with one another, including:
I am thankful for being able to get all that I need.
I am thankful for the ocean and the freeness of the waves.
I am thankful for having food on our table everyday.
