Pledge

Spent a few days this week at a pretty amazing elementary school in Oakland.  Instead of reciting the pledge of allegiance each morning, the students say another pledge — to themselves, their classmates, teachers, families and communities.

Grass Valley Pledge

My favorite part is when they put their fists in the air and say, “I have the power to make my people proud!”
