Grade 3 gratitude

November 22, 2007

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following are Thanksgiving essays by Harbor View Elementary third-graders.

While many children are thankful for the love and the companionship of their family members — not to mention the homework help — it was the valued protection, safety and freedom provided by veterans and firefighters that inspired third-graders at Harbor View Elementary to think about the things for which they were grateful.

After some veterans and firefighters recently visited the children, teacher Linda Wawra got the kids started on the essay project.

“They were so interested and curious,” Wawra said. “They listened to every one of them say who they were and what service they had done.”

I am thankful for a lot of things. But I’m only going to tell three of them. First I am thankful for all of our veterans and everything they do for us. Next I am also thankful for my family because they care for me and love me. Last I am thankful for teachers because they help me learn so I can be smart. That’s why I’m thankful.
