Appreciating the generosity of others

Guest blog by Jamaal Dunham, Social Studies Teacher, East Forsyth Middle School

Generosity has played a major role at our school this year.  We have fundamentally changed our school climate by making the awarding of “crystal apples” a school ritual.

It all started when a few of us wanted to express appreciation for coworkers who went beyond the call of duty. Since we are teachers, we wanted to award apples (but ones that would not rot).  We decided to award crystal apples to show appreciation for those who give unselfishly to the school.

Ever since we started, my coworkers have become more understanding, compassionate and attentive. Everyone is now being generous as they recognize and nominate others for their generous acts. Go Six Virtues!!!
