Lower Schools Celebrate International Dot Day

Lower School Campuses

St. Mark’s and Beaches Campuses celebrated International Dot Day Tuesday. September 15 marks the anniversary of the publication of best-selling author and illustrator Peter H. Reynolds’s “The Dot.” “The Dot” tells the story of a caring teacher who reaches a reluctant student in a remarkably creative way. International Dot Day is a global celebration of creativity, courage, and collaboration. Teachers and students found creative ways to celebrate Dot Day by decorating their clothes and masks, and participating in special activities such as creating their own dot-to-dot in sixth grade math, art projects, candy dot and toothpick sculptures in STEAM, and even using their own thumbprints as a personal “dot” and decorating it.
