Teachers and Families:

Do you know what teachers and parents have in common? They are both exhausted by the end of the evening, every day. The role of parenting, and also educating a child is a job that takes a lot of patience, care and also a lot of love. Let's start off this January with talking to our children and students about Kindness.


Very simply, let us ask: Do your actions really reflect your heart??

The Wisdom of a Third Grade Dropout: (From the Video)


How you living? “Advice from a cook”



  • That you would not judge.


  • That you would show up early.


  • That you be kind.



  • That you make sure that the servant’s towel is huge and used.



  • That if you do something, do it the right way.



  • That’s it’s never wrong to do the right thing,



  • That how you do anything is how you do everything, that way you grow your influence to make an impact. You will honor those that have gone before you.



  • Seek the wisdom and ask yourself every night. How you living?


Kindness begins at home and flourishes in the classroom.
