"We had our assembly at the end of the month. There was a bunch of student work that was shown during the video before announcing the names. The video was a recording of students showing off several assignments. These consisted of things like creating a comic strip of someone showing empathy, putting yourself in the character's shoes during book reports, and persuasive essays on empathy. We also had a great skit written and created by our 4th graders about showing empathy to a new student in school," said Raymond Principal Chris Cady. "Students worked on having an awareness and understanding of others' feelings, and offered help and friendship as needed. This also transitions well into December's "Caring and Kindness" traits."
