With so much going on around us in the nation, I remembered a moment from earlier this past year. What a beautiful and heartfelt reminder!
From the Superintendent's Blog:
In a Northshore Kindness segment, Crystal Springs teacher Michelle Waite recently shared a project at their school. They embarked on a universal book read of sorts. The book titled, "A Little Spot of Kindness" by Diane Alber is about a little spot who goes on a journey to SPOT kindness. By all accounts, it's a really great read and gets the kids watching out for kindness. According to Michelle, their Principal Anne (Nielsen) made the rounds of her school to read the book this month to all the classrooms. As part of the reading of the story, Principal Nielsen is putting a "spot" (colored sticky dot) on each child's hand to remind them to spot kindness around them. Michelle shared; “I've seen so many of our kids (and teachers) with the spot on their hand and they've all been so excited to tell me about it when I've asked. I'm hoping it has a big effect by the time all the kids have heard the story. Next time you're at Crystal Springs, swing by our classroom and we'll be happy to read the story for you!” I am so excited to visit though I might just order an early copy ;>) Think of all the kindness moments, large and small, that have been inspired, -- and simply Imagine the possibilities…
