Vail Mountain School 6th graders sent a Peace Heart Puzzle, extending their message that we each have our own piece in creating a more peaceful world for us all, and when we all fit what an amazing thing we can create. Pair by pair, they put the colorful pieces together, as others were underway in returning letters. One of the students asked if he could take the photo of his friend’s in Vail to photocopy. Dzidor, dzidor, dzidor! The class photo is worth more than our words, or thousand words, could describe!
During second break today, the entire school was gathered in the schoolyard surrounding a drum and students dancing for their positions on the cultural dance group preparing for the Celebration next week. As we were completing our opening circle in P4A, two students joined us that made the cut. Students were excited about their new popsicle bookmarks sent from Dr. Connor’s 3rd graders at St. Andrew’s School. Since there were not enough for each student, we were going to tie them together like paper dolls to hang for all to see. Ms. Anita shared, “When the library is ready, they can take them with them when they go to read!”
Joy has filled our first couple of days on campuses! There is a ton of excited anticipation and preparation underway for the Donation Celebration next Tuesday of the computer lab and library. We will continue to share the joy as the days continue to unfold. You are with us in our hearts as we share the goodwill from the children in America.
