Compassion is Pink!

“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” ~ Dalai Lama

This month at Cottage Lane we are focusing on compassion. At today’s assembly, we discussed the meaning of compassion and how we can show compassion in school, at home and in the world.  Our Compassion Cards encourage us to perform random acts of compassion.  From the Smile Train Fundraiser to Valentine’s for Veterans, our compassion can make a difference in the lives of others.

Our book of the month, Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson, gives a lesson about how even small acts of kindness can change the world. The main character realizes the lost opportunity for friendship and thinks about how much better it could have been if a little compassion was shown toward others.

Remember…Don’t be a wrinkle in someone else’s heart.  Instead…make time this month to complete your compassion cards.  Together we can fill our hallway heart!

  1. Turned to me and smiled
    I didn’t smile back
    looked my way
    I turned to the window
    she’s not my friend
    we all laughed
    she didn’t look up once
    each little thing
    help change the whole world
    kindness more and more.

  2. Hello
    Good morning
    New Friend
    Rippled into the world
    Small things
    Smiled back
    A little bit better
    Each kindness
    Out and away
    Small gift
    More and More
