EVERYDAY HEROES:  The Power of One

One child…
One hero…
One moment in time…
One lasting impression!

 
We are excited that the 2016-2017 Honoring Our Heroes Essay program kicked off on Tuesday, November 15, 2016. Honoring Our Heroes is a writing program that encourages students to discover, honor, and write about real-life heroes - role models displaying generosity, trust, persistence, dedication, leadership, creativity, caring, bravery, imagination, service, gentleness, courage or compassion. Students are asked to redefine media-hyped and cartoon heroes such as professional athletes, movie stars, and rock musicians and instead recognize someone who has made a more personal impact on the student's life such as a family member, doctor, public safety officer, soldier, or teacher.

What a great opportunity to honor someone who may not even know what a difference they are making in your student’s life!

East Cobb County Council (ECCC) of PTAs
2016-2017 Honoring Our Heroes Program

Honoring Our Heroes is a student writing program designed for you to write about your real-life heroes and role models.
The person you write about should display one or more of the following characteristics: generosity, trust, persistence, dedication, leadership, creativity, caring, bravery, imagination, service, gentleness, courage, or compassion.

We want you to redefine media-hyped and cartoon heroes such as professional athletes, movie stars, and rock musicians and instead recognize someone who has made a more personal impact on your life such as a family member, doctor, public safety officer, soldier, or teacher.
