JK and 6th Grade Buddies Share the LOVE
The 6th grade students got together with their Junior Kindergarten buddies just before Valentine's Day to complete a fun art project and continue to bond with their young friends. The 6th graders took their responsibilities seriously while working with their JK buddies. They did a great job guiding them with clear directions, helping them to cut out the letters - L O V E - and use their finger tips to paint, and keeping them on track throughout the project.
Over the course of the year, the 6th graders join with the JK children to help with their integration into St. Raymond School. The school community becomes a welcoming and friendly place to the youngest members when they see familiar, caring faces on campus and in their classroom. The 6th graders enjoy having the opportunity to mentor the JK students.
