Storytime with Principal Tumilty

January Read aloud


The month of January Mrs. Tumilty read Emmanuel's Dream:  The True Story of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah by Laurie Ann Thompson and Sean Qualls.  This book led a discussion about inspiration, determination and perseverance.  The students thought of who inspires them and why and shared their ideas with the class.  We learned that Emmanuel inspires us that no matter if you are born with a disability or not, you can accomplish anything you desire.  Emmanuel's story of hopping on one leg, two miles to school and back, was a great example of determination to go to school to learn.  His accomplishment of biking 400 miles in ten-days was a great example of how sharing a message that a disability doesn't mean you aren't able.  We encourage our Comets to think of people who inspire them!
