Throughout the month of November, faculty, staff, and students here at Saint Leo the Great look forward to a day of thankful reflection – Thanksgiving. This week, the Positivity Project focuses on the character trait of Gratitude. Gratitude can be defined as a feeling or expression of being thankful. It is a positive emotion that helps us all appreciate the people, places, things, feelings, and moments in our lives that we have been blessed with. While students will focus on this word each day during the Positivity Project this week, we also have several other activities for our students that will help further develop this character trait. In recognition of Veteran’s Day, the Student Council is leading a school-wide initiative this week, where students will create cards to send to our men and women serving overseas this holiday season. Mrs. Nolan will be working with our students in their classrooms, with their creative designs helping her to design a gratitude tree that will hang in our school to show all the various things that our students feel grateful for. We invite our parents to continue this conversation at home, asking your children about the cards they have created and what they have included to be thankful for on our gratitude tree.
