Kindergarten- through fifth-grade students at Daniel Warren and F.E. Bellows are spreading kindness and peace throughout their schools. They’ve been building a “tree of peace” and “tree of kindness” to encourage their peers and teachers to continue to be kind to each other.
“Each day the tree becomes larger and increasingly colorful with individual messages of kindness, kind words and inspirational quotes to remind all who enter the building that kindness matters,” said art teacher Dara Goodman, who spearheaded the project.
The “tree of peace” at Daniel Warren is located in the entranceway of the building, while the “tree of kindness” at F.E. Bellows is located near the main office.
