All week at CIS students have been celebrating International Dot Day in the Learning Commons and in Art class. From our Pre-K 3 to High School we have been looking at what it means to leave your mark.
International Dot Day, a global celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration, began when teacher Terry Shay introduced his classroom to Peter H. Reynolds’ book The Dot on September 15, 2009.
The Dot is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe.
And each year on International Dot Day –the inspiration continues. What started as a story in the pages of a book is transforming teaching and learning around the world as people of all ages re-discover the power and potential of creativity in all they do.
With Mr. Lee the students have been making their mark on the World, to show how they stand out and are unique and special! The art work will be displayed next week in the lobby, here is a little sneak peek for now! Our Pre-K, Kindergarten and junior high kids have also done activities in their class which we be displayed. At CIS we continue to build community!! Learn today, Lead Tomorrow!
