A Lesson in Respect

posted Nov 30, 2016, 9:44 AM by Susan Matthews   [ updated Nov 30, 2016, 9:45 AM ]

The third graders in Mrs. Eastman's class had a demonstration and lesson in Karate last week.  They discussed valuable topics such as focusing in school, showing respect, always trying to do their very best and strategies for coping with bullying.  They all, even the teachers, had the chance to chop wooden boards in half with their own bare hands!  A great time was had by all. The class surely appreciated Mr. Standen from the Manchester Karate Studio taking the time to visit them at HGF.
