CRANFORD - Mrs. Francis' P.M. Kindergarten class at Brookside Place School made Valentine’s Day gift bags for the kids and patients at Children’s Specializes Hospital, a RWJBarnabas Health Facility. 

The gift bags were delivered to the hospital to spread love during the month of February. This past month, the students learned about kindness and ways to give back. The bags were filled with little toys for the patients who were not able to leave for the holiday.

"The students have been enthusiastically learning about the character trait, kindness," said Mrs. Francis. "Thanks to the thoughtful class parents, this was a wonderful opportunity for the children to engage in a meaningful act of kindness for their peers who are less fortunate then they are. The children loved spreading some kindness!"
