Dot Day 2014
Last month, McAnally staff and students celebrated Dot Day Week. International Dot Day is a world-wide celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration that began 5 years ago when a teacher introduced her class to the book The Dot by Peter Reynolds. The Dot is a story of a teacher who encourages one of her students to believe in her talents to "make her mark" and in the end encourages others to do the same.
During the week, our students participated in a variety of activities in all subject areas to celebrate their own talents while discovering ways they could make their own "mark" this school year. A look back on our first annual Dot Week can be found here in a video capturing the fun and creativity from this experience. This video had its debut this past Friday during our 1st Six Weeks Celebration Friday. Thanks to the 6th McAnally Choir for performing a live performance of the Dot Day Song by Emily Dale.
