Stone soup at Webster’s Corners

Friday at lunch, a stone soup concluded the month as everyone pitched in and brought some ingredients.

For students at Webster’s Corners elementary, October was the month to focus on gratitude.

Friday at lunch, a stone soup concluded the month as everyone pitched in and brought some ingredients. Carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, onion, potatoes, noodles and vegetable broth were all dumped into a big pot at the front of the school. Volunteer parents took turns supervising and stirring the pot and getting it ready for lunchtime in the gym.

“Everybody brought their own stuff,” said volunteer Jessica Underwood. “Everyone had a part in it.”

Paul Mayo, a parent, added: “And love, lots and lots of love.”

Principal Ramin Mehrassa said teachers at the school have developed a social-emotional learning program that focuses on each student’s “potential contributions to the school, the community and the world.

“We want students to develop a sense of who they are and to see how their actions impact the world around them.”
