Preparing Boys for Life

Fourth graders craft poem about the School's core virtues

On last Friday's Grandparents and Special Friends' Day, Miss Lenahan’s fourth grade class presented their poem on the School's core virtues. Miss Lenahan led the class in a reading of Rudyard Kipling's poem "If" and then acknowledged each student's efforts throughout their fourth grade year by assigning them a virtue that they exemplified. Then, using repetition and rhyme scheme, each student wrote a four-line stanza to share advice on how to lead a life aligned with their given virtue.
