Cherry Lane students stepped into fall wonderland during the school’s annual outdoor Harvest Festival. Organized by the Cherry Lane PTA, students participated in a variety of activities while dressed in their Halloween costume of choice. They took a class photo, ventured through a maze and picked their favorite pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. They also stopped by several fun-filled stations, including a pumpkin decorating table, tattoo station, game station and “How Many Candy Corns in a Jar?” station.

District Teams up for Unity Day

The district joined together to celebrate Unity Day to promote a unified school community against bullying. This event is part of National Bullying Prevention Month, where schools and communities across the country join together and wear orange to show their support for students who have been bullied and spread the message of tolerance, acceptance and kindness.

At the Middle/High School, members of the middle school Builders Club and the high school Unity Club, along with their advisers Mrs. Tara Tully and Mrs. Jeananne Sullivan respectively, teamed up to encourage students to perform “random acts of kindness” throughout the day with “kindness cards.” The clubs greeted students in the morning to sign a school pledge promising to promote kindness and stand up to bullying.

Rushmore Avenue Elementary School sixth grade students also celebrated Unity Day in their advisory class. They created graphic T-shirts to represent aspects of their personalities that make them unique and then shared them with their peers. Afterward, they created a puzzle piece to symbolize that we are all interconnected and a vital part of what makes our community so special.

Cherry Lane Elementary School students also wore orange and participated in several activities to highlight bully prevention. Students wrote words of kindness outside on the school playground, made kindness catchers to inspire ideas for being kind to others and created unity trees. In addition, classes also participated in a “Project Connect” activity, where students wrote what they do to keep school a safe place on a piece of paper and connected the links to visually represent the power of uniting for a common cause.
