Students and Staff at Oakwood recently participated in International Dot Day, which is a celebration of the book, The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds. Students in grades Pre-School to 6th, along with staff members, created paper dots that were used to create one large collaborative art project to commemorate Dot Day.
The Dot is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark." What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe. The actual Dot Day is September 15th, but due to the scope of the project, which most students worked on in Art class, it took a little longer to finish. Dot Day was also included in Spirit Week, and many students and staff members wore dot or spot-themed clothing in honor of the event.
Pictured are some of our 3rd grade students who wore dots or spots to help celebrate Dot Day during Spirit Week. Some more close up images of of Dot Day project can be seen in our Dot Day Photo Gallery.
