During the month of February at Greenvale Park Elementary, kindergarten students focused on kindness. Each month, the school focuses on a character trait as part of its social and emotional curriculum.
Greenvale Park Elementary Kindergarten teacher Tiffany Kortbein explained that as a grade level, they felt one way to practice and show kindness would be to collect items for the Northfield Food Shelf.
“This week the kindergarteners celebrated the 100th day of school and in honor of that our goal was 100 items for the food shelf. The kindergarten students were so kind and brought in 180 items,” said Kortbein.
