Every class at Donald P. Sutherland Elementary School is reading the book “Each Kindness” by Jaqueline Woodson as part of its One School, One Book program. The goal is to provide all students and faculty with a school-wide book to share that integrates social-emotional literature into the Character Education program.
All classes began reading the book last week, which has a powerful anti-bullying message.
The follow-up activity involved students coloring a picture of a stone and then writing an act of kindness on it that they had done. Students attached their stones to a decorative pond that Art Teacher Mary Kay Ostwald created.
Special thanks to the DPS PTO for providing each class with a copy of “Each Kindness”!
