This project was inspired by Wylie students expressing concern about the first day when masks would become optional. Our class found that there were students that were so excited about the opportunity to be maskless at school and others that were very anxious and worried about being in the classroom with others that are not wearing masks. We had class discussions about how we were going to be sensitive to everyone, but true to ourselves. Students wanted to make signs to spread inclusiveness through making posters to display throughout the school. Then we put the pictures into a slide show and added the music of Joe Reilly. We shared the video with Wylie Staff to show their classes and then Dr. Timmis shared it with all DCS staff. We received lots of appreciative emails from teachers all over the district. Our kids were very excited about the possibility of their project reaching all Dexter students!
