Great week here in 5th grade. On Wednesday, we enjoyed a back-to-school address via webcam with the Bishop. He prayed with us and even gave Q&A time. The kids really enjoyed this!
Today, we spent time this morning talking about 9/11. I shared a short video with the class reviewing the important timeline events of the morning - no worries, no gory details or pictures. I read the story "He Said Yes" about Father Mychal Judge and his heroic efforts that day. We shared stories about what they knew about the day why we remember it with reverence. Finally, I asked the students to help me put nearly 3,000 tally marks on our chalkboard. I explained to them this was a good visual to represent all the lives lost. Each mark was to represent the life, from birth to death, that each person had. How each person was a son, daughter, mother, father, uncle, aunt, grandparent, friend, helper, etc. I also told the kids about the display of flags at West Manheim and encouraged them to try to check it out this weekend. What a beautiful tribute!
