This school year, we've deepened our focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. One important way that we have approached this initiative within our curriculum is through literature. As we celebrate Read Across America Day on March 1st – a day established to coincide with Dr. Seuss' birthday – we are focusing on truly "reading across America" with titles that reflect all children in our beautiful country.

As we've been celebrating the life of world hero Martin Luther King Jr. this month, I have been reflecting on his lasting impact. King's sermons, writings, and infamous "I Have a Dream" speech were more than inspirational and aspirational words. King took actions to bring his dreams to life and to make them a lasting reality. What better way to celebrate King's life than to make his holiday a day "on" instead of a day "off" – a day to be all in, a day of service, a day to deliver an act of kindness and do your part to make the world a better, more inclusive place.
This past Tuesday was World Kindness Day – a day reminding us all to be kind and celebrate kindness. Most of you probably know that my favorite quote is by author Henry James, who famously said, "Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind."
