Parents of first graders at Hudson Maxim School were invited to share why they are thankful for their children during recent Parent-Teacher Conferences.
The project, a grade-wide initiative led by Mrs. Linda Blazier, is a way to bring gratitude into both the school and home, which has been shown to make children, parents, and educators feel more connected. Feelings of gratitude help children develop socio-emotional skills and well-being, and help them to become more attuned to the feelings of others. And, of course, there is just no better feeling than seeing so many reasons why you are loved!
Each teacher was given a set of “feathers” to share with the parents of their students at individual conferences.
Parents were asked to write a short note on the feather, describing why they are thankful for their children, and then decorate the feather. Feathers were then showcased on a large turkey, featured prominently in the first grade hallway.
Hudson Maxim School is so thankful for ALL of our children, their families, and of course the entire staff. We wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving!
