Just in time for the season of gratitude, Fourth-grade teacher Allison Lester worked with her students to practice showing gratitude. Each of her students wrote sweet sentiments to the Hough Campus teachers. Just before the break, Ms. Lester shared their words with the lower school faculty and staff. Needless to say, their unexpected kind words touched the hearts of many. 

This is just one of the many ways our teachers weave character education into the classroom  all year long.
