United In Kindness
Deauville Gardens East Elementary School in the Copiague School District dressed in blue on Sept. 30 to show they are united in their acts of kindness. In celebration of September’s character trait of kindness, fifth-graders put on a play about the importance of being kind. They used emojis to show how kindness spreads and creates a positive environment. Each month, Deauville Garden East Elementary School guidance counselor Lysa Mullady works with students throughout the school on different character traits. Students are given “character counts” cards when they are caught doing a kind act and recognized during the monthly assemblies.
