Letter to the editor: School’s act of holiday kindness was touchingDuring the holiday season, it’s fun to go to the mail box and pick up mail.
During the holiday season, it’s fun to go to the mail box and pick up mail. At least once a year, we not only get bills and advertisements, but also personal letters and cards.
More and more people are sending holiday greetings via email now which is faster and more convenient. But everyone still enjoys receiving letters and cards in the mail.
In the last few days, my family has received a few greeting cards from people who are old fashioned like myself (I mean it in a good way).
Among all the cards we received, one stood out and was really special for me. The funny thing is it was not even addressed to me, it was addressed to my daughter from her seventh grade teachers at Lake Middle School.
The holiday photo card has a group picture of the seventh grade teachers and administrator from Lake and the holiday wishes: “Wishing you a happy holidays and happy new year! Enjoy your break!”
Wow, imagine the teachers sending out the cards to 388 seventh grade students!
Before we received the card in the mail, I had already heard about it from my daughter, because her friends had received it and told her. I am sure the students were happily surprised by the card.
I was impressed and thankful for what these teachers did. A simple act of kindness and thoughtfulness can mean a lot to people.
Thanks to all the teachers for teaching and loving your students, and for protecting them when needed (thinking about the recent Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting). A special thank-you to the seventh grade teachers and staff at Lake for the holiday card and for your loving-kindness.
