First graders in Miss Mastroianni’s class at McCormick Elementary spread kindness by sharing compliments with their classmates.
Each student was given a note with another classmate's name and wrote a special compliment for that person.
Throughout the day, names were pulled off of the tree and compliments were shared with the class.
"The smiles on their faces when they heard their name were priceless," said Miss Mastroianni. "Students discussed that not only does it feel good to receive a compliment, but it feels even better to give one," she said.
