Part of a Community
One of the advantages of being located in downtown Vermilion on mainstreet is that we are constantly reminded that we are part of a community. People pass by our windows. We run talk to the neighbors when we are both taking breaks. So it is important that our students get a chance to celebrate the communities that they are members of. This month there are two important activities. One is Random Acts of Kindness. Our students put together gift baskets and delivered them to the businesses that we work with closely.
The second important activity is Pink Shirt Day. On Feb. 24th many of our students wore pink to support the work to end bullying. The act of bullying is not just between two people. It affects the community around them. Our students realize that if learning is to happen everyone must feel safe to take risks, make mistakes and succeed.
