What can I do?

The holiday season is often a time when people think about what they can do for other people. We get excited about the gifts we might receive but what about others who are not as fortunate as we are? Our school core virtue is Generosity this month. Have you given this topic some thought?

But we often think..."I'm just a kid, what can I do?" or "I'm just one person, how can I make a difference?"

Do you think kids can show generosity? Do you think one person can make a difference? Have you done something that helps others?
What would you do to help others if you could? Have you seen examples of people your age being generous?
(leave out others names, please.)

What's In the Bag?

There's a game called "What's in the Bag?" where you try to guess who the person is by pulling out the items or artifacts in the paper bag one at a time. The items are random things that are important to the person. For example, if we played the game and pulled out a (1) football, (2) Bronco Jersey (3) Super Bowl ring, (4) map of Indianapolis, Indiana...who do you think would be "in the Bag? Peyton Manning, of course.

Now, imagine you are putting items or artifacts in the bag for people to try to guess that you are "in the bag." What items or artifacts would you put in your bag? Tell why that item is important to you? Be specific, give details, try to imagine us pulling that item out of the bag as you describe it.
