My children attended Penn State University and both received several scholarships while they were there (yes, I am a very proud mom). I was always impressed about the way the university handled scholarships. The scholarship money was not released to the student’s financial account until a thank-you note was received by the university to forward to the scholarship donor. Here was a major university taking the time to teach basic manners.
The holiday season is a great time to teach children about the importance of saying thank you. Thank-you notes can be simple, or creative, including writing, drawing, and/or photographs. This is also the perfect time of year for children to thank people that make a difference in their lives every day.
And THANK YOU for spending your valuable time reading my blog. I get a great deal of pleasure from being able to share what I learned during 30-plus years of teaching, and hopefully to continue to make a difference. But, without my followers and readers, my blog really wouldn’t matter. So, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you!
Happy Holidays and All the Best in 2019!
