The grade 4’s had a great start to a great school year. They are settling in well with our new school rules & procedures. We celebrated Nitap day on September 22nd. We had great discussions about Friends, healthy friendships and unhealthy friendships. Students were asked to write an Ad for a Friend, they had to consider the characteristics of a good friend and list characteristics they valued in a friend. We also made friendship bracelets.
