Kindness Rocks

Students in all grades at Crozet Elementary painted Kindness Rocks.

Crozet Elementary students in all grades took part in a Kindness Rocks project arranged by art teacher Hope Caplan in the spring. Students painted small, flat rocks with a message or design that conveyed kindness, hope, and community. They gathered on April 30 at the Botanical Garden of the Piedmont in Charlottesville to place their rocks among the plants and trees for others to find, trade, and share.
