The 5th grade classes have been working all year to become a “Certified Kind” class through the Wonder Certified Kind Classroom Challenge. All of the students read the book, Wonder, over the summer, and we have spent a great deal of time discussing and looking for kindness, in reflection of this powerful story. The students have been inspired by the book’s main character, August Pullman, who was born with severe facial anomalies, to be more compassionate people of God.
We are very proud of the students for performing the hundreds of acts of kindness that it took to fill the “Choose Kind Jar”–one marble at a time. We will continue to build upon this trait that is one of the cornerstones of our Student Learning Expectations at St. Patrick School.
Congratulations, 5th graders!
