As part of the Salisbury Elementary Character Education program, Mrs. Bergfeld's 5th Grade Class has had daily discussions about our Panther Pride Character Traits. It was in these discussions that Mrs. Bergfeld’s class chose to complete a Random Act of Kindness for fellow classmates through the use of encouraging words. There have been studies completed on words of encouragement and it has been found that brain function is at its best when it processing positive words rather than negative. Encouraging words have power!
Mrs. Bergfeld’s Class chose to create cards that contained Christmas wishes for our fellow 5th Grade classmates in Mrs. Stoecklein’s class. When each student opened their card, they also found encouraging words as to why the class appreciates them. Mrs. Bergfeld’s class was very honored to hand deliver these cards to each student in Mrs. Stoecklein’s class. Mrs. Bergfeld’s class has learned that “One kind word can change someone’s entire day. “ -Author Unknown
