Andy and Elmer Apple Dumpling Adventure presented to 3rd graders
Five members and friends of the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset visited the 3rd grade classes at Princess Nahienaena School on Monday, May 20 to engage in an ethics activity. Each student was gifted a copy of The Andy and Elmer Coloring and Activity book, a unique story designed to promote Rotary values. The club members read the story aloud while the students followed along in their own book.
The tale revolved around a simple baking project that transformed into a thrilling business endeavor for Andy and Elmer. Through the narrative, The Four-Way Test was exemplified as a mysterious voice guided Andy towards understanding the importance of truth, fairness, goodwill, friendship, and actions that benefit everyone involved. In just 30 minutes, the students grasped the moral of the story - even in the corporate world, it is crucial to show care and concern for others.
Aside from the story and coloring pages, the book offered various activities like word searches, mazes, crossword puzzles, and drawing exercises. It also featured a fun flip-book animation and details about Rotary. As a bonus, each student received a new apple pencil with an apple topper eraser, accompanied by a reminder to "spread goodwill" with every use.
