Kindness March – 8:45 a.m.
Viewing of Wonder – 9:30 a.m.
Scott Guzzo Presentation – 1:30 p.m.
Thompkins Middle School sixth graders have spent the last month reading the novel “Wonder” and will participate in a WONDERful celebration Monday that includes a special Kindness March with Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, viewing of the movie “Wonder” and presentation by former Thompkins student Scott Guzzo.
The WONDERful celebration will begin Monday with a Kindness March. Students will leave Thompkins Middle School at 8:45 a.m. and walk to Showplace Cinema for viewing of the movie “Wonder.” Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke will join students on the march as a way to support the city’s “e is for Everyone” message. Students also will be carrying signs with precepts that speak to them as they walk to the theatre.
Students will then be able to view the movie “Wonder” which is about a boy with a facial anomaly who goes to school for the first time as a fifth grader. It chronicles the challenges he faces and the kindness he shares and receives from others along the way.
Students will then return to Thompkins and in the afternoon will attend a special presentation by former Thompkins student Scott Guzzo. Guzzo’s presentation will begin at 1:30 p.m. Guzzo has a craniofacial condition much like the boy in the movie and will share his journey of adapting to meet life’s challenges.
