How Peter H. Reynolds & his book, The Dot, inspired International Dot Day!

The Dot tells the story of a student named Vashti who doubts her own abilities as an artist, until her teacher encourages her to make a single mark on the page. The single dot she creates in art class and her teacher's encouragement starts a journey of creativity and discovery for Vashti who goes on to inspire other students to be creative in their own ways.

Educator Terry Shay founded International Dot Day to encourage his students to make their own unique mark on the world. This year International Dot Day will be celebrated in all fifty states and on all seven continents with the goal of more than a million participants. Last year Edie Crook, Woodhill Elementary School media specialist collaborated with Ms. Beam & Mrs. Silva & inspired students to "Make Their Mark" & celebrate IDD! Please join us for the 1st annual Gaston County celebration!
