Dr. Goodman, a pediatrician at Riley Hospital for Children, spoke to our 3rd-5th grade this week. Dr. Goodman has Treacher Collins Syndrome, one of the conditions that Auggie Pullman has in the book “Wonder” by R.J. Palacio. Dr. Goodman's shared about his life and the importance of kindness, making good choices, self-control, self-confidence, equity, inclusion, and anti-bullying. We always appreciate having Dr. Goodman visit Roachdale Elementary.

A little fun to end our week last week. Our teachers put on a skit for our students. It is so much fun to engage with our students in a different way and show our sense of humor as well. Thanks to all of the staff participants!
