“We are applying what we’re learning to our lives. Students have chosen 8 super citizens from our community, so we are working toward earning enough to order our statues. We’re over half way now. We have used the super citizen platform as a springboard for many things. I asked the students to write persuasive paragraphs to tell me what they would change in their school. That has led to 5th grade students beginning a new club, “Friends for Change,” and working to fund a project to improve our playground. I believe we are motivating students to get involved in their community, work together for the good of others, and raising self-esteem as well. We do have the next, great Americans sitting in our classrooms.”
