And there is more. There is that something special that happens in creative communities, one of which beautifully prepares our students to be the change-makers of tomorrow:
The child gains a sense that he is a part of something meaningful, that his actions matter and that he has something of value to contribute.
Inevitably, this expands beyond the classroom, and all of us- parents, teachers, community members- are inspired in creative ways. We are all encouraged to grow.
This is an entire community saying yes to new ideas and creative projects, and willing to grow together. Right now, we are making lanterns, preparing to share our light with others in new and transforming ways.
