Reinforcing Kindness

Central Boulevard Elementary School of the Bethpage Union Free School District carried an old tradition into a new school year when it held its first Thoughtful Thursday of 2018-19 on Sept. 27. This month’s lesson focused on ways to “choose kind.”

Teachers led their classes in discussions about the way to be kind to each other and the community. The book “We’re All Wonders” by R.J. Palacio was the focus of discussion in Kristen Ghisone’s kindergarten class. Meanwhile, Barbara Cataldi and her fourth-grade class worked in groups to create banners on five ways to be kind as a class, then decorated individual balloons on how to be kind as a person.

The entire school came together to wear Thoughtful Thursday shirts with #ChooseKind on the back to spread the theme of the month.
