Mailing Hugs for Thanksgiving

We asked how might we plant the seeds of empathy during this Thanksgiving season?

 

With most of us distanced from family and friends this Thanksgiving season, EUMK and the Parent Council joined hands and coordinated a school wide Thanksgiving Mail a Hug Project.

 

Simply put, we mailed hugs to families and friends across the United States just in time for Thanksgiving.

 

Each child shared a hug, using their own handprints that connected to a ribbon, which was the exact size of an arm's length hug.

 

This school wide project not only shared a unique piece of each child with that special person, but it allowed our students the opportunity to grow their hearts.
