Kindness suggestion for the week: - you can do this anytime during the week:

I can write a letter to a nurse or other healthcare worker.

Send a note to nurse Hannah Braley and her friends that are working hard to help people in the hospital who are sick with COVID19.  Write thanking them for being brave and helping others feel better. Draw a picture that will brighten their day and make them smile.  (This is a relative of one of our first grade teachers. If you have someone in your family you would rather write and mail - please do!)
