The Week of the Young Child

Making Kindness Stones with our Faith Partners

For the Week of the Young Child the Fifth Graders got together with their Faith Partners and each of them made a kindness stone. The students were allowed to keep their stones. The Fifth Graders wanted to place their kindness stones in the Altgeld Garden by the statue of St. Francis as a reminder to not only be kind at home but to be kind in school as well!
