During our October staff training, time was spent understanding how to create an inclusive community for ALL students.
Teachers were each given a copy of the book A Rainbow of Friends by P.K. Hallinan. Their task was to go back to their rooms and read this story to the class.
In Art, a project was completed to follow-up on the message in this story. The project involved students identifying unique talents, cultural traditions, or other
attributes to write on a paper T-Shirt. Then, students drew a self-portrait to attach the shirt onto. (See example below)
