A-S Ambassadors of Thanks

Who are our "Ambassadors of Thanks?" After Ms. Shindler's first-grade class read a book about kindness called, “How Full is Your Bucket?” (by Mary Reckmeyer and Maurie J. Manning) the boys discussed ways to "fill our buckets" through acts of kindness -- like saying “thank you."
As Thanksgiving approached, the class decided that it was time to give thanks to the many people throughout the School community who have helped them this year. The boys fully embraced the project, writing and decorating colorful and thoughtful notes of gratitude.

Today, students enthusiastically delivered their notes throughout the School wearing their unique "Thank You Ambassador" buttons which Mr. Rivera helped them create.

We are deeply proud of the kind and loving spirit we see in our students here at Allen-Stevenson, and this was such a meaningful way to start the holiday season!

Allen-Stevenson’s distinctive “enlightened traditional” approach educates boys to become scholars and gentlemen.
