Allamakee Schools Celebrate Dot Day

International Dot Day is a global celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration centered around the book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds.

The Dot is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing.
