Feitshans students sprout kindness with rock garden

October 11, 2017

Feitshans Elementary students are taking the rock painting trend to the next level by starting a kindness rock garden.

Students recently painted their own unique rocks at the school’s first monthly Firefly Family Celebration held on Sept. 29. While they were painting, students listened to the story Only One You, which is about everyone’s individuality and treating people with kindness.

Students will be placing their rocks in the courtyard to start the garden on Thursday, Oct. 12, beginning at 10 AM at the school. Each student will have a painted rock to place in the garden.

The school will continue to add rocks to the courtyard as an ongoing effort to teach kindness.
