When Mrs. Jones took a bad fall on the playground, her entire class jumped in to help.  While some ran to get the school nurse, office staff, and teachers, others stayed behind with her until she was able to get up and walk inside.  These students showed bravery, responsibility, and compassion at such an important time.
