Mrs. Melissa Knowles, Veterans Park Principal, recently asked every student to help with the creation of a Veterans Park I AM Wall. This wall would be a reflection of Veterans Parks’ mission to acknowledge and embrace our differences, and accept and respect everyone for who they are.

Students were asked- who are you and what trait or characteristic best describes you. Once they determined their word - it could be a strength or a challenge -  they wrote it on a label, that they then decorated. Each class then added their label to the bulletin board, by the bus door, where students enter and exit the building.  The end result was a work of art with an important message of acceptance.

Knowles shared, “The hope is that this wall will be a reminder to all of us that we need to be proud of who we are, celebrate who we are and support others for who they are!”
