Darien is making Mindful fourth graders

Darien Elementary School fourth graders have been studying what it means to be "mindful" and what mindful behavior looks like. Each student made a pledge on how he or she would show mindful behaviors in their community. Some examples include being kind to animals, going to church, donating to charities, volunteering and more. It's higher-level thinking in our fourth grade! #Amazing! Great job, fourth graders! #DDCometProud! See more on our website!
