              Principal Notes:

                      Craddock Rocks!

This month, Ms. Hickey and Ms. Mazzella have been

collaborating on a project inspired by the book Only One

You by Linda Kranz.

In art class, Ms. Hickey presented the artistic side of

the book, reviewing techniques the students used early in

the school year, while promoting the character traits of

kindness, being true to oneself, and being happy! Ms.

Mazzella then followed with classroom lessons by reading

the book and having similar conversations with the

students. While the pair originally planned to create a rock

garden around Craddock with all of the rocks, the endeavor

quickly changed to sharing our rocks and student efforts to

make the world a better place, just like the theme of the


Currently, all students are painting and designing rocks

during Art class with Ms. Hickey. Ms. Mazzella is organizing

parent volunteers to help prepare the rocks so that the

students can take them over Spring Break and share them

wherever their travels may take them. The goal is to ‘make

the world a better place’ with our Art work and kindness;

you never know what finding a beautiful or fun rock will do

for someone’s day!

Information on the back of the rocks will direct the

people finding them to take a photo of themselves and/or

the rock and posting it to our Facebook page. Our Facebook

page is Craddock ‘rocks’. Please plan to visit it often for

rock updates! You never know where our rocks, and well wishes

may land.
