Friday, May 15 – Lets End the Week With Gratitude!
Write to Local Doctors & Nurses: Write thank you notes to the medical professionals who are putting their lives on the line to keep you safe. Email your notes to your teacher and we will see to it that they get dropped off at the local hospital or doctor’s office.
Dear Healthcare Hero,
I am writing this letter because you matter to me. You matter because [provide reasons why these medical workers are keeping you safe and making your life better.]
For example, [provide specific details on how medical workers protect you, even when you’re not sick. Each reason and the supporting information should be a separate paragraph. Don’t forget to mention the ways he/she is taking personal risks right now to help during a really stressful time for him/her.]
Thank you for doing these things. [Reflect on how important medical workers are to you and leave them with a powerful final thought.] You Matter!
