On Veterans' Day, all Central School students participated in service learning projects to share with veterans. The project was provided through The Kindness Connection (TKC), an innovative non-profit organization that teaches school-aged children about the values and benefits of volunteering, empowering them to make a difference in their classroom, community, and world.
In order for our students to get the most out of this volunteer experience, post-event reflection and discussion is a key part of the process – deepening the understanding of the impact.
Here are some suggested ideas to discuss with your child:
• What did you think about the Veterans' Day event?
