Mt. Pleasant’s “Random Act of Kindness Wall” is ready for the picking. Teachers will discuss with their class different ways to spread kindness in the school, with their family, friends and even animals. Students are excited to pick a few acts of kindness for their class to spread and share.

VIP Lunch

Third graders invited VIPs into the classroom for lunch. These special guests were presented with written projects made just for them, and they played games that celebrated bonds with special people in their lives.

Feeling Like Coding

Students in Mrs. Smerechniak’s class at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School read the story “Today I Feel Silly” by Jamie Lee Curtis to Mrs. Chester's second grade class. The students shared their feelings with the class. As an added activity, the students correlated their feelings with ozobot movements through coding. For example, if they were feeling excited the ozobot could be coded with the “turbo boost” code.
