Kick Off Assembly

September 28th, 2018

We had a great kick off for Community Heroes at the assembly today! Kala Shah, the founder of Community Heroes, came to introduce the club to the school. She shared her enthusiasm for giving back to the community with the group and showed videos of past projects that other children have done. Kala spoke about how we can share kindness and empathy to those at school and in our community. The children in the assembly were engaged and very inspired to participate in helping others.

Here is a little “Be Kind, Give Back” chant from the end of the assembly.

We also learned about the importance of Inclusion during an engaging talk by Michael Pritchard, an American Comedian, and Susan Schneider Williams, a Dixie alumnus and Wife of former comedian, Robin Williams. Michael shared some of his fun voices from Star Wars, and then enlightened us with ten things he likes to teach kids:

1. Be the medicine for a better World, Community, and School.
2. Use your words as shields and not swords!
3. Anger past thirty seconds is ego, the ego is not your amigo!
4. Wounded people wound others. Hurt people hurt people.
5. Don’t be hater taters, or teacher kids to be hater tots.
6. Life isn’t fair, but you can be fair.
7. Bring the light, but also glow in the darkness.
8. Forgive to live, live to forgive, let it all go. Become serenity.
9. Readers are leaders. Leaders are readers. Your the Author, live the book.
10. Intervene, confront, enlighten. ICE / cool down, ICE up.
