Summertime Sweetness: A Special Art Project in Middle School

The Middle School Division and the Day Care students are spreading the love this summer with another great unit from Middle School Art teacher, Aya Kolwaite. Aya lead the students in a cooperative effort to produce and display their latest project, Kindness Rocks. To celebrate a successful installation of the Kindness Rock Garden, Aya organized a field trip to Quincy Creamery. Sweet!

The Kindness Rocks Project is a nationwide art collaboration with participants of all ages. The purpose of the project is to spread positivity to others, as well as allow students to participate in bettering their community. Students write uplifting messages or paint positive images on the rocks and leave them in the designated garden. Friends, family, and students of Boston Higashi School are encouraged to take a rock if they need a pick-me-up or leave a rock for the next person who needs encouragement. The garden can be found near the Day Program Main Entrance.

Of course, no project is complete without a celebration! After the installation of the garden, the Middle School students took a field trip to Quincy Creamery to enjoy a much deserved treat.  

Thank you, Aya, for always finding creative ways for us to be productive members of our caring community!
