On Monday mornings, during Team Meeting, Grades 1, 2, and 3 meet in the gym to discuss and learn about the different character traits each month. CGS students have been learning about the value of compassion this month. Last Monday, the students had a meaningful discussion and read The Giving Tree. They then sorted and separated the warm coats, pants, hats, and mitts that were collected for families in need at our Holiday Outreach. It was a great morning with a powerful message. The following Monday the students were each given a situation to act out that showed compassion. Their skits involved random acts of kindness, moments of encouragement, and scenes of selflessness. They did a great job! The giving spirit really is among us here at CGS.
