Last week our 2nd graders participated in our school’s annual H.E.R.O. training program where they learn about survival, empowerment, and safe-thinking strategies. While the subject is certainly sobering, this program does a wonderful job of focusing on empowering our students in an emergency to use their brains and have strategies in mind when dangerous situations arise. All of our students eagerly embrace the Hide, Escape, Run, and Overcome challenges as they learn that Superheroes are those who know how to save themselves and help others.
This week we are celebrating Red Ribbon Week and learning how to make healthy choices in all aspects of our lives as we give thanks to God for the strong healthy bodies with which He’s blessed us. If you are on campus this week, be sure to check out all of the fun classroom doors decorated for the competition!
