November Student of the Month - Citizenship
In the month of November, students will learn about the character counts trait, "citizenship". Citizenship means:
-Share to make your school and community better.
-Protect the environment.
-Be a good neighbor.
-Obey laws and rules
-Honor the flag, the sacrifice of veterans, and the wisdom of your elders.
Teachers will introduce this trait to students and provide information throughout the month, giving students an opportunity to show good citizenship. On November 10th we will have veterans here at Thoreau Elementary to provide a flag retirement ceremony, during lunch and recess. Family members, area veterans, firefighters and police officers are welcome to attend. Students will be selected for student of the month based on school wide behavior that provides a good example of citizenship and we will celebrate those students on November 29th at 2:00 PM. You will be notified early that week whether your child has been selected , and invited to attend the recognition celebration to include snacks that you can enjoy with your student. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 505-721-4400.
