South Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Fourth graders at Lincoln Elementary in South Fargo today gained a valuable lesson about "compassion."

A group of about thirty juniors and seniors from Fargo South High School spent the day with fourth graders engaging in fun activities all focused around building compassion.

The day of compassion is just a small part of the district's strategic plan to help build character, citizenship, communication and life skills in young kids.

Nancy Tisor – Lincoln Elementary Counselor: β€œIt's a great opportunity for our kids to spend time with those high school kids and hopefully for those high school kids which a large portion of them are Lincoln, not all of them by any means but a large portion, like I said before a full circle moment that they can come back and give to our kids too.”

This is the 13th year in a row that the Day of Compassion event has been put on at Lincoln Elementary.
