Kindness is everything. It is a simple concept, but one that is ever so important for us all to remember. Kindness is an integral element to all we do at Elmwood Franklin. Growing up is tricky business and sometimes it turns out that children make poor choices and are not kind to each other. In school, these moments provide us with an opportunity to teach children about appropriate words and feelings to share with a friends. Additionally, it is an opportunity to teach a child who may have been on the receiving end of unkind word to advocate for their own feelings. Underlying the complex exchanges that we help our growing students navigate through, the message is consistent - kindness is everything.
