Today, staff and students across the District will observe a moment of silence to remember the devastating losses and the bravery, courage, and humanity shown on September 11, 2001, and the days that followed.

At Montebello Elementary School, the staff will use this day to also talk about choosing mindfulness, resilience, kindness, and love. To reiterate these lessons and kick-off the day in a positive way, teachers decorated the front entrance to Montebello with hand-drawn chalk messages to help students feel welcomed, joyful and loved.

Today and every day, let’s do our best to be kind, have courage and shine bright.
