Moseley Kindness Week

Moseley Elementary art students, with the help of visual arts specialist Ms. Bishop and her UTA student teacher Ms. Martinez, kicked off Kindness Week early on Friday by creating giant collage worlds with painted paper to show that "Kindness is contagious!" They pledge to show kindness everywhere. These collaborative collages are displayed around the school as reminders to be kind. Ms. Green, Moseley's school counselor, is helping the teachers and students find ways to incorporate discussions about kindness in all subject areas this week.
