After reading the book Kids Deserve It! by Todd Nelsoney and Adam Welcome, I was eager to find ways to reach out to students in our school because they deserved to be recognized and celebrated! I often wonder how often students, who we love and adore, don’t know that we feel that way about them. Do students realize that we see all of the amazing accomplishments that they are making? Do they know that we notice their hard work and effort? Do they realize that we are celebrating all of their moments with them-both big and small?
One of my favorite phrases/chapters from the book is YOU MATTER. Those two words are so powerful to me. They mean that we see you. We know that you are working hard. We know that you are giving us everything you have. We know that your story is important and that your struggles do not define who you are.
This postcard is something that I created for our school to send home to students to let them know that they matter. We leave little notes to them, sign it with love then send it to them through the mail. Students are always excited to get mail at their homes that is addressed to them.
The postcards in this file are actually a little larger than the standard USPS postcard size. We needed more space to send love and encouragement to our kiddos so the extra money it costs to send these is worth every penny to us.
I hope this download is something that you and your school can use! Just click on the image to access the Google Drive folder or click here. Please let me know if you have any questions!
