We are in the home stretch! It is bitter sweet I know but we are still learning and having tons of fun here at school!

Tutu’s Spring Break Assignment

Tutu has a special request from each of our students over the break. She has asked each student to take part in a random act of kindness as a Spring Break homework assignment. No matter how big or small any act of unexpected kindness for a family member, friend or stranger with the only motivation of making the recipient’s day a little brighter is all she asks. I know each member of our class will be eager to share their experience with her when we return from the break!
