Dear Thomaston Center School Families,
As an extension of our character development program at Thomaston Center School, we will be participating in a two week Gratitude Campaign through the Look for the Good Project. This inspiring program will begin on Wednesday March 7, 2018 and run for two weeks ending on Tuesday March 20, 2018. The entire Thomaston Center School community is encouraged to participate.
Beginning next Wednesday, orange “Gratitude Spots” will be placed in hallways throughout the school to remind students and staff to think about what they are thankful for. Each morning, students will be writing their gratitude on sticky notes to create a beautiful “Gratitude Wall” of notes which will be displayed in the main corridor.
In addition, you may find your child carrying an orange “Kindness Card” which says “You Matter” on it. Encourage them to tell you why they received the card and who they might give it to next. If your child has not received a card yet, encourage them to make their own Kindness Cards to give out at school. The more cards we circulate, the more we will remind students and staff to share their appreciation and kindness with each other!
To learn more about the science behind this program and how a humpback whale inspired thousands of kids to uplift their school communities with gratitude and kindness, please go online to lookforthegoodproject.org. If you have any specific questions about how we are running the program in our school, please do not hesitate to contact me.
As always, we appreciate your support of our programs at Center School.
Principal Thomaston Center School
