Our quotes for day 3 were: "Wherever there is a human in need there is an opportunity for kindness and to make a difference," and "Kindness means building bridges instead of walls". Our song was "A Little Bit of Honey", and the challenge was to write a note of gratitude to a Spanish Oaks staff member and deliver it. It has been fun to see little stickies and notes all around the school with kind words for our staff and faculty. For the activity each student responded to "I love my school because" and we put them all on a bulletin board. Here is a sprinkling of what the students love about Spanish Oaks: I love learning, i love my school because the teahers are always helpingme learn new things, because of the nice teachers, I like my school because there are good friends, BOOKS!, I like school because of friends, teachers and learning, I love my school because I like the principal, I always know I am safe at school and I am always excited to go to school, school makes me happy.
It was a great day. One of our district staff that is retiring came to our school and the students were all wishing him well as he went around to each class, and then we gave him the heart book we made. He said he has never had anything like that given to him before, and he was touched.
