Little Spots of Kindness Across Ridgefield Public Schools

Every day at Ridgefield Public Schools there are big and small acts of kindness that unite us. The all-school collaborative mural at Ridgebury Elementary organized by art teacher Rachael Penney embodies the kindness that runs across the District.

RES students K-5 read the book A Little Spot of Kindness by Diane Alber. Inspired by the book, students created their own “little spot of kindness” using a variety of art materials and techniques.

With help from building substitute, Rebecca Filiault, Penney organized the spots into a colorful daily reminder to the RES community. Penney reports that she will work with fellow art teacher Megan Kounnas to do a similar collaboration at Farmingville Elementary. (See more RPS art from every grade on Instagram).
