SEEDS OF KINDNESS – Back again for the ’17-’18 school year, CCP students began this year by planting seeds to reflect growth, renewal, and the cultivation of kindness — one of this year’s program themes.   As their first writing and art project, students introduced themselves to one another by interviewing a partner, then writing about them, and finally, painting their portrait.  With the help of volunteer mentors from San Jose State University, kids created a colorful and original gallery of portraits, which will be displayed on the walls of our room at Washington this year.
