I think "little" losses should be included, examined, celebrated, too - like when a fellow student or a teacher moves out of town. What did they mean to us? How will we remember them? Will we keep in touch and how often? 

I think drawing would be fun for some, but I would not make it mandatory as some kids don't like to draw. Also, maybe adult or high school teen volunteers could be present that day at school and could audio record the stories and then type them up and the kids could take them home to parents and/or they could be kept in a book at school? Perhaps some high school arts class teens could draw a picture on the typed up story along with the child who told the story? Just thinking off the top of my head.

I especially like celebrating the death of persons or pets on one day a month and sharing stories about them and serving snacks. This is a VERY good idea!
