Middle Schoolers Explore the Concept of Community

Our 6, 7, and 8 graders met with Mrs. LaCour to talk about: What is Community?
Mrs. LaCour and the students discussed the following questions:

What Is a Community?
What do we need to be a community that is positive and healthy? 
What comes/grows from those qualities? 
What are things that threaten our positive community? 
How do we show our acts of kindness, respect?
What can I do to perpetuate a positive and healthy environment?

Each student was then asked to write down their answers on a variety of colored pieces of paper that were then put together to form a mosaic about our community.

The group finished their time together by viewing a video from Life Vest Inside's Kindness Boomerang, a version of "pay it forward" in action.
