Join our "Community of Gratitude" starting November 9!

In the most difficult times, it helps to celebrate what we are grateful for. Starting Monday, the entire district will be celebrating CCSD 89's "Community of Gratitude".
Elementary school students will focus on gratitude during morning meetings. Glen Crest students will be prompted with gratitude questions at the start of the day. All CCSD 89 students will also be encouraged to write a note of thanks to someone in the school community.
It's not just students; the entire community can participate! Students will be drawing a hand and listing five things they are grateful for. We would love families to post these gratitude hands in their window where community members can see them as they move through our neighborhoods. Parents and neighbors are welcome to add their own gratitude hands as well!
You can also share a celebration of staff or students on social media. On Twitter, you can tag @Celebrate89 to share a message about someone or something you're thankful for in CCSD 89. If you're not on Twitter, but want to share a shout out, email it to with the subject line "Gratitude" and your message will be shared on the Celebrate89 account.
