National Change Makers

As the nation paused to honor the 14th anniversary of 9/11, Nassakeag Elementary School fifth-graders in Adele Gibbons took the 9/11 Good Deed Pledge.

After watching an informational piece about the hope that was born out of the tragedies – namely in the children who were born that day – the class embraced the notion that they each have the power to make a positive difference in the world. Each student then documented how he or she would help effect change through a written pledge, which was displayed to share with the school community.
