Emilio R. (Grade 5) gave an invaluable gift - the gift of being a good friend. He used powerful words such as, “You can do this,” or “I’m here for you,” to help a classmate refocus and build self-confidence. To have a friend be there for you when you during your not-so-great moments encourages you to be your best self. Emilio truly showed: Kindness is Simple. Kindness is Love. Kindness Matters.
