Staff and students at Washington Elementary School recently started a project designed to celebrate individuality and honor the qualities that make us all different and unique. The project was inspired by the book, "You Be You," written by Linda Kanz. In the book, fish of all different shapes, sizes, colors and attributes co-exist to create their community. In keeping with the theme of the book, students at Washington Elementary School painted rocks to represent the fish they read about in the book, while adding their own creativity to the painting. When completed, the rocks will find their way to a dry riverbed to be created in front of the Washington Elementary School building.
Our friends from Caldwell Rocks heard about the project and reached out to help! They provided the rocks, paints, paint brushes, and even volunteers to help facilitate painting of the rocks. As a result, Caldwell Rocks and Washington Elementary will continue our partnership and support of each other's projects within the community. Plans are in the making for Washington Elementary students to help paint rocks in support of the Caldwell Rocks project. Caldwell truly does rock!
