Hero Day

One of the Themes of November's Community Meeting

“Who’s your hero?” asked Principal Ashlyn Field, who was dressed in a superhero cape, as she welcomed students. It was Hero Day at Meadow Pond Elementary and she was elbow bumping with firefighters, book characters, sports stars, a lawyer and a butterfly as well as more personal heroes.

“My mom. She’s a doctor,” said one student who was dressed in a lab coat.

“My family,” said another. “I’m wearing my mom’s shirt, my dad’s tie and my brother’s coat.”

“My uncle,” said a student dressed in soldier’s camouflage.

Hero Day was one of the themes of the November’s Community Meeting, an all-school gathering led by the school’s Ambassadors.
