This week, the Grade 2 class worked with the Grade 12's on a special project. We worked together to make poppies from red and black craft foam and write the names on them of some of the many Reston area people who served in the two world wars.
The poppies were then hot glued to sticks. After a fresh morning walk to the park, the classes of 2018 and 2028 were able to "plant" our poppies around the cenotaph with the help of Mrs. Bonnie Guthrie and Mrs. Marilee Smeltz.
On our way back to school, we stopped in at the Reston Memorial Theatre to have a look at the displays on the wall. So many names and we found many of our own surnames among them. Reston School's Remembrance Day Service, led by our Grade 12 friends, will take place this year on Friday, November 10th at 2:00 in the school gym.
We will remember them.
