On Nov. 23, the day before Thanksgiving break, everyone at North Shore Middle School did something wonderful and inspiring.
Everyone celebrated Everyone Cares Day together making a positive difference in the lives of others. This was the second day of a series of three E3 days where Everyone Matters, Everyone Cares, Everyone Learns – the ethos of North Shore Middle School.
Last month, the students and faculty got together for a day of health and wellness in celebration of Everyone Matters. Annually on E3 Day, middle school students are encouraged to learn about themselves and others while thinking about ways they can make a positive difference in their school, community, and in places around the world.
During the course of the day, students, faculty and staff engaged in numerous activities and fundraising events, some of which were off-site opportunities for our students and community outside of the school.
Some of the E3 Activities included:
• Raking a Difference
• Gifts for Foster Kids (Teddy Bears and Decorated) Duffel Bags
• Cards for Soldiers
• Elementary Teacher for the Day
• E3 Refreshment Sale
• 3 on 3 Basketball
• Turkey Football Bowl
• E3 Mural Paining
• Cards of Love for Hospitalized Children
• Organic Gardening
• Black Friday Fundraiser
Everyone Cares Day proved that when North Shore Middle Schoolers collaborate and work together they could rise to the occasion, pay it forward, and make a difference in the world!
Many thanks to all of the students, community members, and faculty and staff that helped make this day a tremendous success. Please ask your children how they helped make a difference this Everyone Cares Day at North Shore Middle School. Happy Thanksgiving!
