May 4, 2018 Today’s First Lesson was about Habit No. 7, Sharpen The Saw. The classrooms discussed what things students could do to make their body, brain, heart, and soul feel good. Topics talked about were exercising for health, reading and learning for their minds, being kind to others for their heart, and spending time with family and friends for their soul. Since it was a beautiful warm day outside, the whole school went for a half mile walk on the track for exercise with classmates, teachers, and friends. During the Student Spotlight, 3rd graders Alora B. and Zeinab H. sang the “Perfect” song. Students Kayla S. and Elijah L. showed us their talents for drawing. Next up were the talents of two jump rope teams. Finalists The Dancing Llamas showed us their tricks on stage by synergizing together. 5th grade students were Ben S., Dominic M., Silas B., Mitchell M., Jaden B. . The second jump rope team were the Champions The Royal Jump Squad. With their awesome team jerseys, they astonished the crowd with their acrobatic jumps and teamwork. 4th grade students were Fatima E., Jamil E., Adam H., Jesse W., Faisal N. .
Nearing the end of the assembly, the student winners were revealed for Bikes For Books. Winners were second graders Aaliyah K., and Zachary S. The winners were announced by Mrs. Tiba and the Dearborn Masonic Lodge, Mr. Mahmoud, Mr. Carl, Mr. Sam, and Mr. Tim. Overall, it was a great hour of Sharpening the Saw as a school, with parents and guests.
