Coming up this semester! Let's remember to Put Your Heart Into It—and learn skills to make any task a better experience.


First, print this Educator List of Prompts to share with your students to get them thinking about enjoying life and what makes them happy. This Student List of Prompts page is easy to cut and share so students can work on their artwork or stories from home. 

There are two ways to participate:

2. Turn in your student artwork or story submissions about Put Your Heart Into It to Let your students know their stories and art can reflect many different ways to enjoy life's journey. They can draw what makes them happy -- or write about ways they shut down negative self-talk in order to enjoy life! 

Submissions are due March 15, 2024.

If needed, here is a parent permission form for student involvement. For your records. Not required for submission.
