Students and children are encouraged to show their support & spirit for the 2018 Winter Olympics by wearing red, white and blue, Olympic logo wear, etc. The 2018 Winter Olympics began on Friday, Feb. 9th and closes on February 25th. Forty of the 243 US Olympic athletes are from New England. The state-by-state breakdown is as follows: Massachusetts (13) - Vermont (13) - Connecticut (8) - New Hampshire (3) - Maine (3) . Olympic Spirit day allows teachers to remind the children how acceptance, generosity, respect, honesty, kindness, creativity, fairness and perseverance are all character traits that are needed for everyday life, team and individual sports. These character traits are all being discussed through the year for our monthly Pride Assemblies.This month’s character trait is kindness.
