Maine’s Positive Story of the Day ~ Mt. Vernon Elementary School~
“They are Thankful!”
Throughout the month of November students in grades K-5 have been showing their gratitude for friends and staff members over the morning and afternoon intercom announcements. By completing a simple form students shared that they are thankful for friends playing with them, helping them with learning classwork, and for being kind. Some students have shared their thanks for their teachers and all the help they give them each day. It has been amazing to see students’ faces light up when they hear their name being called and the reason why they were chosen to be recognized. After they are read aloud the thankful slips are posted on the bulletin board in the hallway for all to see.
