Even Ms. Paparsenos and Mrs. Dettelbach joined in on the fun as they visited classes to share their favorite read alouds.

It's a success! In honor of Martin Luther King, MLK students added add some "heart" to our MLK walls with the Pay It Forward 500 Heart Challenge. Each time a child does an act of kindness, they illustrated or wrote about it on a heart to display on our wall. Our school totaled ____ acts of kindness.
