Dublin City School District shares a story of Wonder
The Ohio Department of Education joined thousands of Ohio students last fall to celebrate R.J. Palacio’s Wonder and the release of the film adaptation of her best-selling novel.
Wonder is about the power of kind acts, meaningful peer connections and strong adult mentors seen through the eyes of an extraordinary, spirited fifth grader, Auggie Pullman. Auggie is venturing into school with many of the same interests and worries of other students his age. However, he also is entering school with an exceptional challenge.
Now that the movie is available on demand and on DVD, more students are reading the book, enjoying the movie and embracing its theme of Choosing Kind.
The Department continues to hear incredible stories of students choosing kindness in their daily lives after reading the book. One of these stories from Dublin Coffman High School lifted our spirits, reminded us of the importance of choosing kindness and illustrated that the world is truly full of wonder.
