FOR KIDS: GO GREEN FOR ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

Feeling extra lucky this week? That may be because March 17th is St. Patrick’s Day! The holiday celebrates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. People wear and decorate with green and eat traditional Irish foodto celebrate the holiday. Go green with some shamrock jewelry, shamrock pins, or a leprechaun hat! Or read a St. Patrick’s Day themed book to learn more about the holiday!


    FOR PARENTS: DON'T WORRY! BE HAPPY!

    On March 20th, we celebrate the International Day of Happiness. The day celebrates ways we can create a happier world by being mindful, grateful, and kind. Singing a silly song or taking a silly photo can spread some happiness and create wonderful memories.


    FOR EDUCATORS: WORLD POETRY DAY IS MARCH 21ST!

    Poetry is a great way for children to express themselves with only a few words. Poetry helps children tap into their creativity and think about how words are related. Younger students will enjoy these poems written by kids like them. This collection of poemsfor older students will encourage them to look at the world differently and explore the power of language. Children of all ages will enjoy this powerful video featuring one of the most inspiring youth poets, Amanda Gorman, as she reads her poem “Talking Gets Us There”.
