Habits of Mind: “Safe, Responsible, Respectful, Ready to Learn”


Memorial Day Celebrated at WES


Students have been learning about the meaning and significance of Memorial Day for the last week. We have learned facts about our American Flag and what it means to respect and honor the flag. Students in Ms. Sara’s class did a few fun crafts to celebrate the holiday by making T-shirts and wreaths. The entire school visited the Windham Center Cemetery and placed flags at veteran’s graves. We talked about the proper placement of where the flags should go and that placing a flag shows respect and is a thoughtful gesture for those that have and continue to fight for our country.
