Thank you for coming out to see our first and second grade performance of "People Who make a Difference". The children were fabulous! Our study of people who make a difference continues as we learn about famous and not so famous people who have helped make the world a better place. We have learned about Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., Jackie Robinson, George Washington, Mahatma Ghandi, William Kamkwamba (a young man who helped his village in Milawi by building the first windmill to produce electricity and pump water during a severe drought), and Betty June Skelton (who became known as the "First Lady of Firsts" and set astonishing records in aviation and auto racing!). We are talking about the different ways people can make a difference and are brainstorming a list of things that we can do to help make a difference too! So far, the children thought of planting more flowers and trees in the community, taking weekly walks to pick up neighborhood trash, and help restaurant owners make food! We will continue to brainstorm ideas and then vote on an idea to pursue.
