Students learn DEI skills

Students in the 6th grade DEI class have been learning about self-awareness, communication skills, appreciating differences and empathy. The culminating project for this quarter’s 6th grade DEI course was to put their learning into action and create picture books focused on empathy. Students worked hard to come up with stories that would be relatable to younger students. After their books were complete with illustrations the 6th graders visited Mrs. Oakes’ first grade class to read their stories and to share their knowledge about empathy with younger learners.
