So Much to Be Thankful For #HennesseyRising

Posted

We know at Hennessey Elementary that there is always so much to be thankful for! Grade 4 student, Gabriela, was asked what she is thankful for this year. Her response, “teachers because they are so nice and I love the made up games at recess so we don’t get bored. Teachers make math and reading fun.”

We are thankful for how our school community comes together through our spirit days. Looking forward to our November Spirit Days of Dress LIke a Teacher and World Kindness Day. !#HennesseyLovesASpiritDay

We are thankful for our abilities to make good choices and believing in ourselves which was the theme for our first annual Red Ribbon Week held at the end of October. Rianna, a 4th grade student, makes lots of good choices each day. She says that she eats her vegetables and fruits and feels good when she does the right thing when nobody is looking. Students participated in creating artwork and brainstorming things we love about ourselves. Shout out to the East Providence Prevention Coalition for their support in this school wide initiative. #RedRibbonWeek #IBelieveInMe

We are thankful for our community projects we took part in this month. Hennessey Heroes are also Feinstein Junior Scholars and we know the importance of doing our part and making the world a better place. We created cards to thank our service men and women who are serving our country. Rhode Island Blue Star Moms will send the cards in their holiday care packages in Operation Holiday Cheer this year. #MakeTheWorldABetterPlace

We are thankful for each other and celebrate all the things that UNITE us. Each year we celebrate Unity Day at Hennessey and take the pledge to support kindness, acceptance and inclusion. #UnityDay2021

Hennessey students and staff will continue to work hard each day, and we will continue to show the importance of our core values of being SAFE, RESPECTFUL and PROUD!
