Above you see one of the many paper chains our students made before Christmas vacation in collaboration with their 7th and 8th grade buddies. I came in during the break and put up every chain that was made on the last day of school.
The "littles" and the "olders" all had great fun. I taught many of the 7th and 8th graders when they were in kindergarten. It's so nice to see them back in my classroom. Being a mentor is a fantastic confidence booster and an all round good experience. It's amazing to see the nurturing these "tough" junior high kids can give. Just think, one day, your child will be the nurturers!
