Today was an exciting day in fourth grade~ we finally got to meet our Kinderbuddies today!! Fourth graders were delighted to have the chance to head back to kindergarten for the afternoon to meet their new friends! Thank you so much to Mrs. Gilbar's class for letting us come down and make pumpkin glyphs with you! We had so much fun :)

Kindness Boomerang

In a world where you can be anything, be kind. Students in Ms. Poncelet's fourth grade class learned all about the importance of kindness at the start of this school year. Inspired by Life Vest Inside's kindness boomerang, students created their own chain of kindness in order to show how even one simple act of kindness can change someone's entire day. 

One act of kindness can even set off a chain reaction that can help others, inspire others, and make the world a better place!
