Remembrance Day @ CKSS

Here is an outline of how Remembrance Day was observed at Craig Kielburger today. 

Period 2, classes watched a video created by Kyle Hume and Anna Burnett's classes. Here is a link to the video:

At the end of the video there are several questions that were used as discussion starters with classes. Teachers and students reflected on and discussed the importance of the day. Students were encouraged to use social media to share their thoughts about the day, the video presentation and/or any words/thoughts of thanks using the hashtags #CKSSRemembers, #RememberThem and tag @KielburgerSS and/or @RoyalCdnLegion.

During Periods 2, 3 and 4, students were asked to visit the atrium where a display was set-up for Postcards for Peace. Students and staff were able to sign a postcard and write a short message. The postcards were given to a rep from the local Milton chapter of the Legion who visited the school during Period 4.

At 11:00 a.m. the entire student body observed a moment of silence.

We are thankful for the work of our students who created the video and the other activities, and for the respect shown by all of our students today, as we remember the sacrifices made by those who fought for our freedoms.
