We Are Thankful

November 26, 2019

Thanksgiving is a time for us to express gratitude for what we value in our lives. Family, friends, health, home, food and on and on. All month Kiddie Academy students have been learning about the Character EssentialsSM theme, “We Are Thankful.”

Thanks in various languages

“We help children recognize and appreciate the many things they have in their lives for which they’re thankful,” said Richard Peterson, Kiddie Academy’s Vice President for Education. “We focus on character traits of positivity and contentment and how they enable us to feel grateful and show appreciation.”

Recently, we visited Kiddie Academy of Abingdon, Maryland, and as you can see for yourself, they have a lot to be thankful for.
