Every heart on this Kindness Tree represents an act of kindness along with our Duke Values of respect, responsibility, integrity or perseverance. The Verellen School students grew this tree from September to May in the Music and Mindfulness classrooms. We also had a Christmas Kindness Tree in December. We are excited to report that we grew our tree with 2,000 hearts on our tree!!! AMAZING! Be so proud Verellen School students! Your kindness will keep growing into more kindness!

Every year on March 21, people all around the world come together to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day by wearing brightly colored, mismatched socks. March 21 is symbolic because people with Down Syndrome have 3 copies of their 21st chromosome. Socks were chosen because the karyotype of Ds chromosomes actually looked like mismatched socks! #rockyoursocks
Monday, March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day! Join us in celebrating by wearing brightly colored or mismatched socks. ROCK YOUR SOCKS!
Please join us for extended Book Fair hours this evening from 5:30-7:00pm!

Garber student, Bella Salinas, delivered an incredible care package for Verellen students. Thank you to the Just for Kids Charitable Foundation and their Youth Board for this wonderful donation that will provide many basic necessities to students in need.
Verellen students are spreading kindness like confetti! The students have been writing out a positive sticky note in the Music and Mindfulness classroom to place on the bulletin board in one of the main hallways.
The board reads...
"Take what you need or show someone you care, spread kindness everywhere"
Students are encouraged to take a sticky note that lifts them up or they could take one to give to a student or staff member to encourage and inspire someone else.
Words have power and this project aims to spread the power of positive words and kindness to our Verellen school family.
