CHANGING HEARTS
Our Lenten tree is blooming with purple hearts full of acts of kindness! Keep letting us know what great acts of kindness your child has shown at home to family and friends so we can recognize them for it and give them a purple heart. We will continue to keep our eyes peeled for acts of kindness at school.
