Constitution Day: Extraordinary Possibilities
* On this day when the nation pauses to consider the significance of the U.S. Constitution, students have the opportunity
to consider two important notions: 1) they live in one of the freest and most prosperous nations in the world,
and 2) it is a nation full of extraordinary possibilities created by ordinary people.
Constitution Day: Hope of Liberty
Constitution Day, September 17th, is a good opportunity for students to reflect on the hard work and dedication of our
Founding Fathers who created the U.S. Constitution. The men showed perseverance, responsibility, cooperation, and commitment.
Students consider the idea that a democracy must have future generations who are willing to cultivate these
character traits in order to thrive and remain free.
Constitution Day: The Power of Ideas
* The founding of America has been called a grand adventure in ideas. Our Founding Fathers knew how to share, analyze,
and debate ideas respectfully. As students move through life, it will be important that they listen to and share ideas with
others, debate ideas respectfully, and most importantly, pay attention to how ideas influence them and the choices them make.
Grandparent's Day: Wisdom from Our Elders
* One of our nation's greatest resources is the wisdom of those who have walked farther down the path of life, but sadly,
we don't always foster relationships between our young people and the elderly. This message and corresponding lesson plan will
help students better understand how they can benefit from the wisdom of those who have a link to the past.
Hispanic Heritage Month: Finding the Dream
* It is important to set goals and work hard to achieve the American Dream. Vice Admiral Antonia Novello, the first woman and
first Hispanic Surgeon General of the United States, tells young people that they should also take a stand for what
they believe in and serve others. Students will take a look at the traits needed to achieve their dream.
Hispanic Heritage Month: Two in One
* There are millions of people in the U.S. who speak both English and Spanish. Research shows that, among other things,
people who speak two languages increase their thinking skills. Whether one's second language is Spanish, Arabic, or French,
there are many benefits to being bilingual.
Labor Day: Honorable Work
* Thomas Carlyle once said, "All work is honorable." Each day honorable people get up and go to work. It's easy
to take for granted the benefits of that collective effort. These materials allow students to pause and reflect on all the hard
work good people do each day from which they benefit.
National School Success Month: Learning to Learn
* Learning how to study not only helps students become better learners, it can help them become better people.
