Lessons from the 5th grade
Today was one of the sweetest acts of giving I think I have ever experienced. My sweet friend Katie had a baby shower today....given by her 5th grade students! It was soooo precious! They brought a cake, they all wore white or pink (bc she's having a girl), they all brought gifts, and they even had sweet party favors! The thing that makes this act of giving so incredibly moving is WHO is doing the giving.
I have written about the population of students we teach before. 100% of our students in our classrooms are on free/reduced lunch with the state government.....truly, our students have so little....but they do so much with the so little they have.
Such a good lesson from the 5th grade ...yet again!
