Dublin City Schools grow thinkers, provides a world class education, and works on continuous improvement. This is the Dubin Difference! Civic engagement, career exposure, empathy, strong work ethic, communicating with confidence and serving others are a few of the traits the Dublin community wants to see developed in our students. This past monday, we celebrated Dublin first responders in our Celebration of Heroes event to provide our students with an opportunity not only to thank these men and women for what they do, but to experience their service based careers firsthand.
Several police officers and firefighters from the Dublin Police Department and the Washington Township Fire Department were able to join us at the event. Students honored our heroes with a video about what makes a hero, medals of thanks, and letters to say thank you. All involved were touched by the ceremony, and thankful to all the students who filled their buckets to make their day! These are memorable moments for our students and staff. At the beginning of our ceremony, we did the Pledge of Allegiance and Wyandot Pledge with our heroes. Though we do this every morning, saying both of these together with our heroes was extra special. One of the firefighters was blown away that we have a Wyandot Pledge and asked for a copy to show others in the fire department. He plans to use the Wyandot Pledge as a model for the firehouse.
I thought I would share the Wyandot Pledge with all of you. Please ask your children about why we say this everyday!
I am a smart, special, valuable person.
I respect myself and I respect others.
My words and actions are kind and honest.
I accept only my best in all I do.
I am proud to be ME!
Thanks for all you do for the students of Wyandot, and thanks for sharing your children with us everyday!
