This week, SDJA celebrated International Character Day, along with over 120,000 other schools and organizations around the world. Our GMLS students gathered for an assembly to talk about making intentional choices about who they want to be in the world and about how they can do unto others as they would have done unto them. Each student then went back to class and made a blue and white bracelet to wear and to remind them to do kind deeds. Fifth graders and preschoolers gathered together on the Promenade to write messages of kindness with sidewalk chalk. While the chalk marks will soon start to fade away, we want to make sure that our core values of kindness and menschlikeit do not.
