Jefferson Elementary 3rd Graders Express Their Gratitude

Jefferson Gratitude The students in Mrs. Gibbons Third Grade class are grateful for all the wonderful things in their lives.  They all feel that it is important to be grateful for the things in your life because if you focus on the positive things in life, you’ll be happier!

The students decided to multiply their gratitude by paying it forward. 

They took part in a service project by making craft kits for the children at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. They filled the kits with art supplies and crafts, so the children staying in the Pediatric Unit will have something nice to do while they are at the hospital. They hope their act of kindness will brighten up the patients’ day!
