A Class's Compassion

Unfortunately we lost our second fish today.  "Squishy the Fishy" is no longer with us.  I was very humbled by the students' reactions and what they wanted to do out of respect for Squishy.  Yes, he was a goldfish but my thinking is that if our young people can show as much compassion for a goldfish as they did today then our future is pretty secure in the way they will look after each other. I'm incredibly proud of them.

They continue to amaze me every day with the way they treat each other and also me.  I am one very lucky teacher and they are a credit to their parents.
