Nassakeag Elementary School students and staff helped to promote the nationally recognized Unity Day this October by joining together to create an artistic symbol of peace.
Keeping with their new character education motto “Nassakeag CARES,” the school crafted colorful leaves with anti-bullying messages. The completed designs were affixed to a large tree themed bulletin board in the building’s main hallway to show that the school is working to stop bullying one leaf at a time.
The school will update the messages on the board each season as a way to promote unity and anti-bullying throughout the year.
Nassakeag CARES stands for Compassionate, Accepting, Respectful, Embracing and Successful.
