Herricks Middle School acknowledged November’s theme of gratitude with a project called Full of FLAKES and Full of Thanks. Students and staff members took time to focus on what they are grateful for about the middle school, in-person or virtually, and their collective reflections resulted in a work of art.
Colored popsicle sticks were provided to in-person and remote students as well as staff members, and all were encouraged to write down something specific that they feel thankful for. They shared favorite parts of the school day, past experiences and much more.
The completed sticks were assembled into snowflake shapes, and the finished products were displayed in one of the building’s hallways in a united showcase of gratitude and school pride.
