A Time Out For Tolerance

At a time when it is unclear how much of the tumultuous political atmosphere is reaching our students, regardless of their points of view, it is important to take a time out of the curriculum to focus on things that matter above all else: tolerance, kindness, empathy, unity.  So that’s just what 4th and 5th grade will be doing this week: reading books that touch upon the value of the human experience and how we are more alike than we are unalike.

No big discussion, no political grandstanding.  Just sharing and enjoying stories worth reading and ideas worth remembering, peacefully.
