Every year the fifth grade students at Koepsell Elementary have a Thanksgiving feast. Mrs. DeCook, teacher, brings the main course and students bring in side dishes and desserts. Just as many families in the community come together and reflect on what we are thankful for, this tradition builds a closeness in the relationships we have in our school community, something we are thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving from Koepsell!
Students in Mrs. DeCook's class left their elementary years behind as they symbolically bridged from Koepsell to South Lake Middle School.
Koepsell Elementary students were enthralled with DJ Rodney Page's "Think Outside of The Box" presentation! It was engaging, upbeat and delivered a positive message Koepsell students can use in their everyday lives! A former DJ with the Detroit Pistons and former public school teacher, Mr. Page encourages students to work hard, not judge, and resolve conflict nonviolently. In addition, students were encouraged to seek greatness in everything they do, and he shared examples from his own personal life to inspire children to do their best. Finally, using music ranging from classical to hip hop, Mr. Page demonstrated how we are more alike than different!
