12.18 {Whatever Wednesday}: Compassion

Whatever Wednesday — a chance to post something I’ve seen that I’m diggin’. Though often a cool quote or poster, it might simply be a picture.

Enjoy!… and consider posting your own Whatever.


  In class we are talking about compassion. I’m encouraging my students to submit pictures—or put into writing—the things they are doing this holiday season to show compassion to those around them. I want to hang these items on our Compassion Wall in our hallway. The school is doing a drive for Children’s Hospital and the Salvation Army. I’ve shared  with the students how we worked with Boxes of Love to put together bags of groceries to be distributed to those in need. We also had a cookie decorating party and will be taking the cookies to a hospice facility in the city. We have a couple other things planned as well.

Being involved in the #ReadWalkWater project was a great compassionate start to the year. We provided water to over 1200 Ugandans.

Students have shared how they are involved with things like Operation Christmas Child, donating clothes and toys, and helping serve the needy. It is so awesome.

These quotes fit perfectly with this month’s theme of compassion:
