Our virtue this month is THANKFULNESS.
To open our Thankfulness assembly, we had Mr. Henry Charles of the Musqueam First Nation to give us a traditional welcome. He told us a story about how the Musqueam got their name. I encourage you to ask your child about the story. It was a challenge for many of us as he told the story in the Musqueam language. I thought that the language sounded very poetic.
In our classroom, not only do we use our manners and say thank you to each other but we have also been practicing gratitude and saying thank you every week for both the little and big things in life. Many of the students are thankful and appreciate their families, friends and classmates.
Thank you for creating such thoughtful and insightful children.
