Today, let’s reflect on what it would feel like to be on the giving and receiving end of some of our previous actions. Let’s access our power of empathy (the ability to understand and share the feelings of another) and gratitude (readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness) to create broader understanding, acceptance, collaboration, thankfulness, and well-being in school.

Timber Champagne is here for today’s Veteran’s announcement:

Originating with the first Armistice Day observance, it was common practice for people remembering those who served in World War I to wear a red poppy, symbolizing sacrifice.  The poppy's significance to today's observance is a result of Canadian military physician John McCrae's poem In Flanders Fields.  The poppy emblem was chosen because of the poppies that bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I. And their red color seemed an appropriate symbol for the bloodshed of trench warfare.  Veterans’ groups still distribute poppies for the observance, with some opting to wear white instead to symbolize the hope for peace.

Lunch: Line 1: Baked Potato Soup; Line 2: Chili Dog; Line 3: Chicken Empanada
