GRANBY - Granby Elementary students who exhibited kindness toward others throughout the month of December were recently honored with the school’s character education award.
Following a few academic and social goal shout-outs for students from their teachers, Principal Gina Salerno reviewed with students what it means to be kind. Students who exhibited friendliness, generosity and consideration toward others were honored with a kindness certificate of recognition.
“I want you to think about yourselves and how you want to be treated,” Principal Salerno said. “You want to be treated with kindness and (should) do that with other people.”
It’s not just about being kind while at Granby Elementary, she said, but also at home and in the community.
