The Problem

Each year, students at Nicely Elementary School participate in a day of activities that focus on physical, emotional and mental health awareness while being responsible members of their community. The theme this year is #GSPride and it is our hope to bring attention to and to teach our students about the many different ways they can stay physically, mentally and emotionally healthy. All 400 students in Grade K-5 will rotate through a variety of activities teaching and allowing them and allowing them the opportunity to "try out" various physical activities, coping and preventative skills, anger management techniques and ways to relieve stress.

Our Plan

We believe that it is imperative for us to teach students about the importance of giving back to their community. We believe that students benefit from learning and being exposed to many different kinds of experiences and activities. It is through these activities that they find that their actions have a direct impact on themselves, their families, their community and the world. This year, students will be tasked with creating dog toys, cat toys, dog treats and bed that will be donated to our many local pet shelters. In addition, we will be holding a pet food drive with all items also donated to local shelters and rescue facilities.
