“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.”
― John Holmes
This week, P.S. 361Q students celebrated Valentine’s Day and Respect for All Week by creating valentines for adults and children at NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens Hospital.
All classes read books that encouraged students to discuss acts of kindness and the ways in which kind actions affect others. After reading, students made valentines for adults and children who are staying at NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens Hospital. Our valentines will be delivered in time for Valentine’s Day!
This activity guided students to recognize how small acts of kindness can affect the people around us. We are learning to spread kindness to the people in our school and community. We encourage you to continue this conversation at home! Ask how you can perform small acts of kindness for your friends, your neighbors, or the members of your family. You might even consider working together to perform an act of kindness for a loved one or for the community.
A special thank you to Ms. R. Schwartz for ensuring the safe delivery of our special valentines! We sure hope we brought smiles and happiness to everyone who received our valentines which were made with love!
