Please excuse this blatant brag post…
I must. I can’t help it.
I received this email last week about my oldest child, and I’m so proud of her that I just have to share!
I wanted to let you know that your daughter is my February Student Spotlight! This month teachers were looking for students in their classrooms who show “Tolerance”. This is a student who recognizes and respects the opinions, practices, or behaviors of others-even if they are different from his/her own-and welcomes new experiences and people into his/her life! She will be recognized at an assembly…. and this will remain a surprise for her until our counselor recognizes these students during the morning announcements sometime next week!
As I write this, she doesn’t know of the award. I love that she is being honored for something that just comes naturally to kids, but seems so difficult for so many adults.
We can learn so much from the small ones in our world, if we just pay attention, watch & listen.
