#KindnessCounts designs

This week in the Learning Commons some classes have begun to experiment with our new button maker. This was purchased with greatly appreciated funds from the GVPAC, the school and with profits from the Book Fair. It has been a great success and we can see lots of possibilities. The students are designing smiling faces to help us remember to smile as we pass each other in the hallways.


“So Cool!”


We have a great selection  of titles to help develop skills in Social Emotional Learning. Click the image for a selection of books that help students think about being compassionate.:
