As we read the book "Wonder", we are learning the importance of being kind in a world that may not always be so kind to us. This nine weeks, we are working on a "Kindness" wall which will contain MANY photos of our students completing "random" acts of kindness!! We are very excited about being able to "throw Kindness around like confetti". Through this project, we are hoping to spread the message that it is important for us all to "BELIEVE THERE is GOOD IN THE WORLD"!!
