Sussex Elementary

Sussex Elementary is an amazing K-5 school (470 students), full of awesome students and staff, who are positive and supportive of each other here at school and around the community! We have been through a lot of challenges in our community, but the school continues to be a great positive place where everyone is always willing to help out, volunteer and participate in activities, events and initiatives that promote our school spirit while supporting others and the environment!

We have "adopted" a little girl from Sudan with our Sunshine club. The students collect our recycling and raise money for her sponsorship. We have created a bulletin board for our school so all the other students in the school can read about her. We will be adding to the board as well, with new photos, and things are doing to help support her! The children are learning how they can support world citizens even in a small community and how their efforts can make a difference in others' lives. We often talk about volunteering here at home, but this shows them a bigger picture.

We shared the Challenge today at our monthly school wide assembly and presented a few awards to children for some of their Global Act ideas up to this point. The video introducing the challenge was presented and our school's Sunshine club was introduced to the school. We are sharing the acts of kindness that can be done in our community and how even as students we can make a difference to the planet, whether it be helping other people, communities, or our environment.

Peace by Piece - we are in the process of creating a Peace Chain of various ideas our students have to share about how we can make our world a better place. So far this is a new initiative so it has just begun. The students will be adding their ideas throughout the month and we will be posting the chain in the lobby. The Sunshine club is going to make a banner as well to post in the lobby of our school. We are coming up with ideas to help each other, our community and the environment.

We have placed several boxes in the front lobby that we are now collecting for our local Sharing Club (food and clothing). The students will be bringing in non-perishable food items until the end of the month and slightly used clothing. We will then be delivering to the Sharing club, on behalf of our school and Sunshine Club! We want to show our community that we can make a difference! Our Sunshine Club decorated the boxes and are doing guest spots on the morning announcements to remind students of this initiative! Helping to support our community needs. Our students are learning various ways they can help support our community and reach outside of the school setting to help!

Our Sunshine Club was involved in our Pink Day assembly by writing up Pink Sticky notes and going out into the students sitting, posting positive messages on students to help brighten their day. They wrote things such as Be Yourself! and You are Awesome among many other happy messages with the goal of brightening someone else's day! Our students are involved with our school community, helping to enhance the lives of our fellow students through simple positive messages that they created and posted on the kids!

Lights Out Challenge - Our students will be going around to all the classrooms during the day to check that while they are not in use the lights are off. If the lights are left on while they are gone, they will receive a 25cent fine. This money will then be used for our local sharing club! We are sharing with all our students the importance of conserving energy in helping our environment! This is a simple task that we can all do daily and remind students how even little things such as this will help our Earth and support our planet!

We are going to be collecting spare change to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy. Each week the students will have an opportunity to participate in a special event (e.g. Hats for the Hop), and bring spare change which will be collected by our Sunshine club an donated to Muscular Dystrophy. We recently lost a former student to this disease and also have a student ambassador here with it as well. We would like to honour these students and show them how we can help support them and their families through this cause. We will be ending with a Hop on Easter with our final amount raised. By showing students their ability to help out peers and also support them through helping with money that will go towards research and support. These types of activities show children that they can make a difference, through simple gestures and acts. They are learning that everyone can have a positive impact on others and ultimately the global community.

The Sunshine club has been sharing on the morning announcements ways they can have a positive impact on their fellow students, community, environment and to the world. They have shared various things even children can do daily to help each other, our school community, town, environment and beyond.They have been excited to participate in so many events that can have a positive effect on others! (and will continue to participate in many more projects to come this year!). Teaching children that even simple acts can have a positive impact on others and will show them as they get older the positive effect that they can have on others (and the great feeling as well for themselves for doing kind acts). We are working towards helping to create a community of caring individuals!

Pink Shirt Day - our whole school had an assembly to share what it means to be a friend and how to include each other. This is a day where we focused on the importance of working together to make our world a better place for all! Working together to make a difference, using our kind words, inclusion and sharing to allow everyone to feel safe, accepted and happy.

Sussex Elementary students always enjoys spreading positive messages to help our environment and earth! Our goal is to continue to participate in our Green Team activities at our school and share with others what we do! Our students always are reminded that they are our future and great messengers to help our environment! Our goal is to be able to eventually start up a green house at our school as well, and if we win we could use money to help support this dream!
