Lady's Island students received a gift this year to welcome in the new school year. Students in grades 3-5 received a copy of the book The Hero Two Doors Down
by Sharon Robinson, Jackie Robinson's daughter. Students in grades K-2 received a copy of Testing the Ice also
by Sharon Robinson. Both books are based on true stories about baseball legend Jackie Robinson who broke the color barrier in baseball.
We are reading the book together at school and then the books are the student to take home and keep. Teachers are discussing with students the lessons to take from Jackie's courage and helping them apply them to their own lives so that they can be heroes too. The whole school is celebrating the heroes all around us, even two doors down!
