Kids created authentic thank you's for our guest speakers!
Group created a poster. The poster has a picture of Jim Cleere, the two firefighters that helped him, is set above the Reflecting Pool in New York. The Marriott is where Jim passed away on 9-11. "Never Forget!"
Students created a firemen's hat with the number 343. That number represents how many firefighters were lost. It also represents the 2 fallen firefighters that helped Jim that day, but lost their lives.
Students created a poster. The sticky notes are various quotes students used in their thank you's or reflections. Underneath the notes it says, "Thank you Brian".
Mrs. Crowther lost her son, Welles (also know as The Man in the Red Bandana). Kids created some authentic thank you's to send to her.
Students made bows out of red bandanas. The blue in the middle represents the one that Jeff Crowther's color of bandana, his father. They also ordered a chain for the Crowther's for Christmas.
Tribute Center and Arlene
Students created a cardboard firetruck. Inside the fire truck are thank you's from students. Arlene's husband was a firefighter that passed away during 9-11. This was their way of showing her appreciation to her for Skyping with us.
A student had a parent donate an old fire helmet for this authentic thank you for Arlene. Students wrote memorable quotes from the sessions and thanked her for sharing with us!
