On Friday November 16, CES took part in our first cross grade level activity day. This year’s theme Dare To Care, sets the tone for what activities the students will participate in. The theme, Dare To Care was created by the staff with the intention of helping students further develop empathy. The vision is that we as humans need to care for ourselves, our family, our community and the larger community of the earth. The students and staff really enjoyed being together and participating in activities such as yoga and exercise, making apple crisp to donate to the community Thanksgiving dinner at the Legion and for our families, and The Dot art project that reminded us that we are all creative beautiful humans! We spent the afternoon at the Bellows Falls Opera House eating popcorn and watching the feature film, Charlotte’s Web, a story that celebrates kindness and friendship. Our next Dare To Care day will be Friday December 21.
