As part of the district’s ongoing social emotional learning initiatives, kindergarten and third-grade students at Branch Brook worked together for a hands-on activity on June 3.

The kindergartners in Sharon Weissman’s class partnered with their buddies in Annamarie Polito’s third-grade class to share the book “Only One You” by Linda Kranz. They then discussed the messages in the story and choose one saying that inspired them the most. Each student brought in a rock from home, on which they designed and painted a colorful fish. On the back of their rock, students copied their favorite inspirational message.
