The fourth grade classes have just concluded a unit dedicated to what to do if you are a witness to mean behavior. They have been discussing and role playing strategies of how to help, especailly if there is no grown up present. We had a very lively and well though out discussion on the concept of "social power" and how we can all use the social power we have to lift up others or inadvertently support other's negative behavior. Each class is now working on their end of the year project to be presented to the kindergarten classes during the last week of school. They are all also anxiously awaiting our fourth grade visit to RFIS on the 5th. Please remember to return your child's permission slip if you have not done so alreay.
Although I will miss all of them next year, I know our fourth graders are well prepared for a new adventure at RFIS!
