Throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, essential workers have continued to serve on the front lines, caring for people and doing the critical work that keeps our community functioning. In a year that has seen so many challenges, the Student Council at T. J. Connor Elementary School decided to bring some holiday cheer to essential workers in the Wheatland-Chili community.
Students throughout the school dedicated class time to make “Thank you” cards for the men and women working these essential jobs. These students came to understand that expressions of gratitude are always welcome and always appreciated.
Representatives from Student Council even accompanied Advisor Mrs. Hughes to local businesses to drop off the “thank you” cards. They started at Buster’s Market, and visited locations like Dollar General, Mark’s Pizzeria, and the United States Post Office in Scottsville.
“We spread Christmas and holiday cheer, it felt amazing!” said Sierra Musson and Anna Reid, Student Council Representatives.
No gesture of gratitude is too small. This holiday season, these students demonstrated that principle wholeheartedly.
