What is the story behind your panel?
“Mrs. Julie Class’ third grade class chose the theme of “Helping Others”. We discussed how important it is to help those in need in both our local and global communities. The class learned that in extreme cases, people need items necessary for survival such as food, clothing, medicine and shelter, after suffering a devastating event. However, on an everyday occurrence, the children learned that they can still help others in need. From performing random acts of kindness to cheering up a friend whi is down, they realized that they are able to help others on many levers, each and every day of their lives. The Dream Rocket Project has been a wonderful way to bring awarness to the children as they envision themselves being superheroes who can make the Earth a better place.”
