Fifth Grade Kindness Retreat

Fifth Graders-

What did you think of the kindness retreat? What did you like? Learn? What about kindness were you reminded of as you listened and discussed with other students?

In the blog, over the next few days, I want you to respond to what you thought and think about making a pledge.... what will you pledge to do, so you can demonstrate that you are a kind person, in what you say, do, and think?

Be honest, yet sincere and respectful!

"Every day, go out of your way to do something kind."

Disease Research

Fifth Grade Students:

Your job in the next week is to find ONE fact about your disease that you plan to research. Look on the internet, in a book, check out some books from the library! Please write your ONE fact in a complete sentence on the blog.


Influenza is a highly contagious disease. Three things that you need to make sure that you do not get the disease are wash your hands, cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, clean things that are touched, and avoid others that are sick!
