Spreading Sunshine

We are called to give, to be generous, and to think of others. We are called to be the hands of Jesus to everyone we meet!

This week, the boys and girls took an opportunity to brighten the spirits of our Grade 8 class! These junior high students have been working hard, writing exam after exam over the last few days. Today was the last exam they had to write. Whew!

To encourage the Grade 8's and let them know we believe in them as they wrap up this week, we assembled and decorated Sunshine Bags! The Grade 1 students filled each bag with a chap stick, gum, juice, granola bar, and a special little message! The children delivered the bags prior to the last exam this morning!

Filling the Sunshine Bags!

What a wonderful treat for our grade 8's, and what a wonderful experience for our grade 1's! What happened after we delivered the bags, though, was really neat. Each and every Grade 1 student had a giant smile on their face! Giving makes us feel so good!

May we always remember to be kind and considerate of others, and that our actions, no matter how small, matter!

Thanks for your advice, Kid President!
