Make new friends
Posted on February 18, 2016
Do you remember the old scout song?
“Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold.”
The classroom environment, sports, clubs, and extra-curricular activities, afford our students many opportunities to be a friend as well as make new friends. If treated with care, school friends can become forever friends. And that’s golden.
Sharing wins, losses, laughter, and tears with teammates and classmates can lighten the sadness or deepen the joy.
The fourth-grade students designed awesome boxes to hold their Valentine’s Day treats from friends.
Sharing laughter while practicing their math skills, the kindergarten class stomped 100 balloons in the gym. The students counted and wrote numbers 0 to 100, even counting by twos, threes, fives, and tens.
