This past Thursday, fifth graders joined with ninth and tenth graders to close our World Changers unit with a special breakfast to honor all of the staff that keep our school clean and working smoothly. High schoolers organized a potluck, and fifth graders contributed food along with a small handmade picture frame as a token of appreciation. Students acted as servers for the workers to do so much to serve them throughout the year, and we were truly impressed with the courteousness and humility that our students showed!
In addition, with an hour's notice, our own Ekaterina and Natalia along with Laura from secondary wrote lovely words of thanks which they shared with our honored guests. Our hope is that this activity has encouraged students to notice people who may normally go unnoticed, and to respect people from all walks of life. In our group reflection afterwards, I could tell that students had learned a lot from their experience!
THIS is why we love Discovery School!
