There is so much in this newsletter this week, I am going to make this short and sweet. 
Often, folk refer to the month of February as the month of love, especially with Valentine's day this week. Well what a great time for us to practice gratitude and kindness. 
I want to encourage you to find opportunities to help your children become ambassadors of kindness this month. I would love for you to send me emails of any acts of kindness that the children participate in outside of the school day. I would love to just publish a big old list of those in the TWAM!  
I am working on some acts of kindness for the staff this week. I will fill you in next week! 
Please email me: connie.crigger@boone.kyschools.us
