Providing Gratitude Through Art
Every day, I think about how we could provide a great educational experience AND also allow our students to use their creative capacity to send a message to the world. Right now we are doing something really special that meets this challenge that I want to share with you.
The Hero Project is the centerpiece of our systemwide focus this month and all of our schools are rolling out a lesson plan that allows each student to honor someone in their community who has dedicated their life to helping others during the COVID 19 pandemic.
I personally want to honor Joanne Moldt from Cresskill, NJ. I have known Joanne and her family for over fifteen years and she is the embodiment of a passionate healthcare provider. She has put her life at risk helping others as a critical care nurse at Englewood Medical Center and has never looked for accolades. Joanne gets her gratitude through helping others and I just wanted to let my community know that Joanne is my Hero and I will Honor her through our Hero Project.
The Hero Project at One River School…art = gratitude.
