On Friday, November 15th, students, teachers and faculty came together for a Bulldog Families Assembly focusing on gratitude and giving. We started out altogether in the gym to talk about gratitude and the benefits of ‘practicing’ gratitude. Then we spent time with our Bulldog Families to share, write and illustrate specific examples of things we’re grateful for and things we do for others, with the goal was of keeping the focus on actions and personality traits rather than gifts and possessions. In closing, we highlighted a couple of upcoming opportunities to engage in community service, including participation in the current toy drive for Head Start Boulder County. As a grand finale, a few teachers led a community sing-along of Natalie Merchant’s Kind and Generous. When you have a chance, do take a moment to check out our gratitude and giving banners, which are hanging outside of classrooms throughout the campus!
