Share with Westchester Students

First-grade students at Westchester Elementary have created an interactive chalkboard that shares obstacles they have overcome. Their Spring Expedition is called "Their Story, Our Story, My Story." After learning about the obstacles many historical heroes had, they learned about the obstacles teachers and heroes in their community had. Then they reflected about obstacles they have, seen and unseen, that might keep them from being their best. They learned that through positive character traits they can turn their problems into possibilities. The interactive public chalkboard will be on display for one and a half weeks on the corner of Church St. and Sycamore St. It's purpose is to bring the Decatur community together to connect us as humans through "our story" of overcoming. Please drop by between April 30th and May 10th to share an obstacle you have overcome.
