Capitol students enjoyed celebrating DOT Day today! Capitol Counselor Barbara Utley hosted the event after students learned about having self-esteem, perseverance, and creativity after engaging in the book The Dot by Peter H Reynolds. The child in this story is convinced she can't draw, but her teacher gently encourages her to begin with a single dot, and her creativity takes off. Mrs. Utley taught that even though something might be hard, the first step is "trying" and she helped students understand that it is ok to "fail." Students enjoyed the book, creating dots, and dressing in dots! Thank you, Mrs. Utley, for boosting courage!
