This will be our first year celebrating Dot Day at Lewis and Clark! My fabulous Parapro's husband told us about it last year but we just couldn't fit it into all that was going on. So this year I started reading and learning about it during the summer months after seeing it mentioned often on Twitter. I have recently been planning how to bring this
day week to LC students and make it so very meaningful.
We will be spending the week making our mark creatively and really thinking about how we can impact Liberty, Missouri, the United States, and ultimately, the world! I am teaming up with fabulous first grade teacher, Ms. Oyler and her Lewis and Clark Service Learning Club to reach out to people and places who may need assistance or simply a smile. We will be starting locally and moving globally. We will hopefully be connecting with former LC 4th grade teacher, Chip Bloecher and his family as they begin a mission in Honduras.
I worked this weekend to begin publicizing the event so kids will begin to wonder and find out about this celebration when they come to school on Tuesday.
