In preparation for the Thanksgiving weekend, ACDS students celebrated with a special activity, the Gratitude Tree. Our students in the higher grade levels, Big Buddies, teamed up with our students in the lower grades, Little Buddies, to cut and color the leaves. Then, each student wrote what they were grateful for on the leaves and pasted them on the tree to create a beautiful piece of artwork showcasing the theme of gratitude. Community events such as this one not only are a wonderful way to bring our school community together as one, but are also an integral way ACDS supports character development in each of our students.
A big thank you to our wonderful Parent Service Auxiliary who created and supported this event. We are grateful for our parent volunteers for making this event possible and their continued support throughout the entire school year.
