- The Great Kindness Challenge will take place Jan. 22-26. This will be another opportunity for our students to practice kind acts and to reflect on their impact on others. They will be given a checklist with different "acts of kindness" ideas such as: Entertain a friend with a happy dance, smile at 25 people, learn how to say "hello" in another language and make a wish for a child in another country. You may spot Sessions students around the community demonstrating just how kind they are.

- Barnard Mandarin Magnet Elementary School students are instructed for 50-80 percent of their day in Mandarin, including in-depth instruction in the ancient Chinese arts. In partnership with the Confucius Institute at San Diego State University, students are taught tai chi, abacus, calligraphy, tea ceremony, national dances, poetry, and more by visiting Chinese and Taiwanese teachers. This not only gives the students a better perspective on the culture from which the language derives, but it also gives them an opportunity to use the language in settings that are not just purely academic.
