Estes Park Elementary School Students Showing Kindness & Compassion
Students at the Estes Park Elementary school were excited to make and sign large “Thank You” cards to acknowledge and thank members of the Estes Park Volunteer Fire Department and neighboring fire departments and the Estes Park Police Department for all of their heroic efforts in last week’s Park Theatre Mall fire.
Students have also been busy writing letters to firefighters, police officers and shop owners in town, telling them of their thoughts of the fire.
The project was initiated by the Kindness and Compassion Club in the elementary school. The Kindness and Compassion Club is an offshoot of the Rachel’s Challenge Club in the high school and middle school. Rachel Scott was the first person killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. Her acts of kindness and compassion have become the foundation for one of the most life-changing school programs in America.
Way to go students for being so kind and compassionate by thanking our local firefighters and police and thinking of the business people in town.
