Following in the Footsteps of Heroes Continues!

Fun projects, lunchtime social time, collaboration with peers, and more!!! Mrs. Patterson (5th Grade) and Mrs. Bruno (Social Skills) are continuing their program - “Following in the Footsteps of Heroes” within the upcoming weeks. Students in grade 5 have the opportunity to spend some of their lunchtime to explore topics of philanthropy, caring, and helping others. Projects are geared towards enriching these ideas through artistic activities, expanding their knowledge base, and creating projects based upon their own ideas that will be moving forward into the spring. Since this is a voluntary initiative, all fifth graders are welcome! Our projects are often shared with the entire school, such as our dedicated Rock Garden will be revisited in the spring. Look out for other future activities that you may be asked to participate in. For example, our Seeing Eye project last school year was a school wide one!
