Students at Fairview Elementary School in Plymouth recently participated in a school spirit week May 14 to 18.
The week consisted of theme days around the concept of caring:
- Monday, May 14: To show they care about the community, students wore hats – as in as in “hats off for Plymouth” – and began a food drive for the Plymouth Food Pantry.
- Tuesday, May 15: To show they care about the environment, students wore green and accessories made out of recycled items. Some classes made litter bags, collected litter, planted seeds, and watched environmental videos.
- Wednesday, May 16: To show they care about their health, students dressed in athletic or sports clothing and everyone went outside at 9 a.m. to walk or exercise.
- Thursday, May 17: To show they care about learning, students wore black and orange, Plymouth High School’s colors. They also created learner badges, on which each person wrote what they are learning, and participated in DEAR – Drop Everything and Read – two or three times during the day.
- Friday, May 18: To show they care about family, friends and Fairview, students wore red. They did “buddy” activities and watched Fairview’s “3 Word” video created in support of the family of kindergarten teacher Anita Williams, whose son is being treated for leukemia.
