Friday, May 22 is the 143rd day of the year. One-four-three had a special meaning to one of Pennsylvania's most beloved residents – Fred Rogers. To Mister Rogers, one-four-three represented the words: I Love You (one for the letter "I," four for the four letters in "love," and three for the three letters in "you").
This week, the Governor of Pennsylvania is asking our students to show kindness to someone they love or to the healthcare workers who have been keeping us safe during the pandemic.
Make a card for a loved one, donate food to a food bank, write your favorite teacher a letter letting them know you miss them, whatever you do, do it with kindness. Show your teachers your acts of kindness so they can share it with the governor. This way, we can all reflect on how grateful we are to have each other. Let's get out and make someone feel the love Pennsylvanians have to offer.
Happy 1-4-3 Day in PA!
