Active Empathy

Today was a lesson in perseverance and working through things we might not be the best at right away. Our 7th graders worked on making more paracord bracelets for Operation Gratitude. For some of our kiddos, this was pretty easy; for others, this was a true test in following instructions to the letter. Some of our students put together snack bags with encouraging notes for Ronald McDonald House. We also practiced following a recipe by making no-bake cookies for Mobile Loaves and Fishes. We ended our day with some team-building activities that included figuring out how to fly a kite, hula hoop, bounce on a hippity-hop, and throw a Frisbee in the crazy wind. Our kiddos showed a lot of determination, grit, and perseverance!
