KATONAH, N.Y. -- Increase Miller Elementary School students spoke openly about their similarities and differences during a special character assembly Friday, March 27.
Students watched an animated story, “The Crayon Box That Talked,” in which crayons learn that by working together, they can create a beautiful picture.
“If we were all the same, the world would be a boring place,” said Assistant Principal Andrew Galotti.
Students said despite differences in hair or skin color, height or weight, friendship is the most important quality.
The assembly ended with a performance by third-graders Jesse Collins and Alexander Shtohryn, who wrote an original song about the value of getting along and maintaining friendships.
