Sofia Rossetti Dewing Principal for the Day

Dewing Elementary School‘s Principal for December 18th was Miss Sofia Rossetti.
Thanks to her parents’ donation to the Tewksbury Education Foundation (with a silent auction bid), Sofia led the school’s morning announcements, visited classrooms, invited two friends and her brother to lunch in the office, introduced Ms. Bridgford at the opening of our school music concert (parent concerts are Tuesday), delivered school supplies to teachers, greeted friends, teachers and students in the hallway, and led dismissal. She decided that the principal’s walkie talkie was a bit heavy after a while and gave it to her assistant (me) to hold. She was gracious, kind, and smart.   Nicely done, Miss Sofia!

World Kindness Day – November 13

Kindness Day isn’t just about adopting all the children from your local orphanage – it’s about the little gestures of kindness too. Helping others can restore a sense of humanity, not to mention giving you that warm fuzzy glow inside.

Kindness Day was born when a collection of humanitarian groups came together on November 13, 1997 and made a “Declaration of Kindness”. Likewise, on Kindness Day everyone is encouraged to make a similar declaration. Donating books, food or clothes to your local community is a great way to celebrate. However, pledging to commit just one act of kindness is no less worthwhile: hold the door open for a stranger, compliment your neighbour on their collection of garden gnomes, let your partner have control of the TV remote for the evening.

However you decide to celebrate remember that the best thing about Kindness Day is that it doesn’t cost a thing!

Remembering 9-11-01

The Dewing School Community remembers those who were affected by the historic events on September 11, 2001. Because our students are so young, we will not share a moment of silence during the school day, but will always keep in mind the significance of the day
