More images from The Signature Assembly Project this morning attended by grades 2-5.
This morning our PTA provided us with one of the best assemblies we've ever hosted at FKS - artist Patrick Dunning's Signature Project. The engaging multi-media program shared with students some stories of the millions of people from around world, includinging our new staff, who contributed their signature to this amazing work of art, 25 years in the making, celebrating the journey of life - its beauty and fragility. You can find out more information on The Signature Project at https://youtu.be/x3xNDAXDT0Y Many thanks to Patrick Dunning and our PTA for bringing us this thought provoking and inspirational program. One third grade student shared, "I was mesmerized and my brain hurts!"

Today is the begining of Start with Hello Week, sponsored by SandyHookPromise.org. The Start With Hello program teaches students in grades to build connections, end loneliness, and help each other. The premise is that small but powerful actions can promote inclusion and kindness. Start With Hello Week daily themes will be as follows: Today - Meet-n-Greet Monday: Meet someone new, use your own personalized “Hello Style!” Upstander Tuesday: Show appreciation to the Upstanders in your school community. Notice and recognize someone who reaches out and helps others! Wear Green Wednesday: Green Out! Wear green today as a symbol of unity and solidarity with Sandy Hook Promise. Trusted Adult Thursday: Thank a Trusted Adult today. Trusted Adults are always spreading the Start With Hello spirit! Moving Forward Fri-Yay: Make a Start With Hello Promise Pledge to keep the Start With Hello spirit going throughout the year!
