DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU!
It begins with YOU!
The Friday Assembly of March 16, 2018 was about one of the world's most universal rules found in cultures around the world and that has been around for thousands of years. Anyone can practice this rule. It is a special rule that can be practiced by people young and old and by all faiths.
We were treated to the reading of the book, The Golden Rule, by Ilene Cooper and illustrated by Gagi Swaikowska, by Mrs. Shimek. Mrs. Shimek learned about this book from Mrs. Mullen, the school's former music teacher. It is a beautiful book in which a grandfather explains to his grandson how and why the Golden Rule is so important. The Golden Rule describes very simply how we can live with one another if you learn to treat people the way you you'd like to be treated.
Members of the Kulāiwi class performed a meaningful skit based on the Golden Rule and the Assembly culminated with the singing of song composed by Mrs. Mullen on the Golden Rule.
It was an Assembly that shared in meaningful ways -- through reading, through theater, and through song -- the important message for all of us to live by! Remember, it begins with you!
