Flagstaff Academy ushered in the month of September with the Dragon PRIDE theme of Perseverance. At all grade levels, our students have been learning how our first responders embody perseverance to ensure all of our safety. Time was set aside for each class to find ways to express their appreciation.
During the week of September 11th, Mrs. Alison Adam's kindergarten class created thank you notes to show their appreciation to our local first responders, as well as a way to remember those who sacrificed their lives to help others.
Mrs. Katherine Sloop and Mrs. Terri Reh's middle school advisory classes asked students to bring in locally harvested or donated produce, baskets, bags and ribbon, to be able to assemble healthy food gifts for two of our local first responder organizations, the Lafayette Police Department and the Longmont 911 Dispatch Office.
The students decorated the baskets, filled them with healthy treats, wrote thank you notes, and created posters. Coincidentally, the Chief of Police in Lafayette is a Flagstaff Academy Dragon grandfather!
This month's theme is part of Flagstaff Academy's Character Education and school culture of Dragon PRIDE -- PERSEVERANCE, RESPECT, INTEGRITY, DEPENDABILITY, and EMPATHY.
