“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” Henry B Adams. Some examples of student leadership, in connection with Green Elementary & local community, highlighted by Principal Rebecca Osburn:
Students in Mrs. Maggie Mace's preschool class had the opportunity to discuss how animals in nature will look for food in the winter. The class also took action to create feeders that were then placed on the playground to help provide a snack for hungry critters. Students wrote about and drew pictures of the animals they hope will come eat from their feeders and have been making observations to see how long their feeders will last. Preschool was so excited with their work!
Our school hosted our 5th annual Student for a Day event where parents had the opportunity to shadow their student for part of a day to see what leading and learning are like first hand at Green Elementary. Over 100 parents participated in the school visits which offered them the chance to experience daily curriculum, specials, lunch and recess. Our school greatly appreciates the support of our school community for this and all of our school events!
