Students at The Epstein School understand that every day is a great day to be thankful, show gratitude, give back to the community, repair the world and take care of themselves. At the Tikkun Olam Service Learning Day, Epstein students created meaningful posters with messages of thanks, love, charity, community, friendship, joy and good deeds. They also decorated pots and learned about and installed plants in them to give to their teachers and show their gratitude. To understand how to better take care of themselves, students also practiced mindfulness and engaged in yoga and team-building activities. To understand how to better take care of the world, students welcomed Mary Kuo, a representative of the Environmental Protection Agency, who guided them in a discussion about water conservation, the importance of recycling and limiting use of plastic. At the end of the day, they held a special tefillah and joyfully sang songs.
