Gillispie “Gem” of the Week

“Each year, the fourth grade boys and girls meet with both teachers for Second Step lessons. These character education lessons encourage students to discuss issues occurring on the playground, challenges with friendships, and home/school connections. The teachers create games, read stories, and use role playing to promote positive discussions. This year, the girls created a ‘Peace Blanket’ to display–for all children on campus–the many meanings of peace; the boys created a ‘Friendship Tree’ through which they shared what friendship means to them.”

Ms. Haas and Mrs. Shieh
Grade 4 Teachers
