Red Ribbon Week
We celebrated Red Ribbon week October 23-October 27th. Students created their own red ribbons of kindness, watched videos about anti-bullying made by the 8th graders, listened to ideas of how to spread kindness throughout our school, and received some reminders about being kind with a bracelet and bookmark. We ended the week by tying our class red ribbon, with quotes and our names on it, to a tree outside our school.
