Drawing A Smile

As part of Thoughtful Thursday, a schoolwide community service initiative, students of Central Boulevard Elementary School drew colorful pictures for Color A Smile.

According to its website, every month the nonprofit organization distributes thousands of cheerful crayon drawings created by volunteers of all ages and abilities to senior citizens, troops overseas and anyone in need of a smile. 

The day kicked off with faculty and administrators distributing Thoughtful Thursday T-shirts to students and staff. The new shirts reflect the school’s motto of choosing kindness, believing in oneself and standing up to bullying. The district thanks the Central Boulevard PTA for providing every student with a shirt.     

Wearing their new gear, students in grades K-3 colored in pictures for the nonprofit group, while older students wrote positive messages and drew colorful illustrations.
