Heroes Welcome
Smith3 SQUARE

Second-graders in the classrooms of educators Cheryl Poppenberg, Meagan Ryerse, Karen Shaul, Trisha Sills, and Janelle Smith feted those they admire most on Friday (May 18, 2018) during the 2nd annual Real-Life Heroes event at Silver Creek Elementary School.

The OBSERVER newspaper of Dunkirk sent a reporter to cover the heartwarming event that focused on sharpening the students’ writing skills and providing a deeper understanding of heroism. You can read all about it on their website or check out pages from the Saturday, May 19, 2018, edition of the paper below. Additional classroom images are included below as well.

Dozens of people showed up to be honored, listen to the students’ essays, reflect on the lessons and enjoy photo opportunities.
