SJE Super  Hero Project

Each year South Jefferson chooses a school-wide theme. This year, as our school theme, we are celebrating heroes! Heroes in the community, heroes in the country, and heroic behavior in our day-to-day life. We would like to celebrate these behaviors and encourage them among our students. In order to do this, we need your help!  

 

Here is a list of some examples of “heroic behavior” that your child might participate in: 

  • Volunteering at a local animal shelter 

  • Visiting the elderly at a local nursing home or veteran at the VA hospital 

  • Helping to clean up or recycle trash  

  • Collecting food for a canned food drive 

 

This is how you can help: 

In order to celebrate the “heroes” of our school, we would like you to take pictures or document the heroic behavior your child displays. For example, if your child collects hats and gloves for a clothing drive, snap a photo of them dropping them off, and send it to their homeroom teacher. Your child will have an opportunity to share with their class and explain how that good deed or behavior made them feel! This will give our students an opportunity to give presentations in front of their class and help them to understand the importance of being a hero every day. 

It is our hope to compile an SJE heroes video with all of the photos we receive to show to the students at our heroes assembly later in the year. 

***Please send photos to Ms. Sigley or to your child's homeroom teacher.  Thank you!***
