First Grade Community Helper Day
WDES first graders had their first annual Community Helper Day. Students have been learning about their community, what makes up their community, and the people who are leaders in their community. The first graders spent the morning and afternoon being visited by leaders in the Weddington community. A pilot, a sheriff, a pediatrician, a banker, a dentist, and a storyteller all shared about their roles in the community. The students had time to ask questions and learn about these occupations. We thank all of our community helpers who where so willing to come and share with the first grade at WDES.
