Students write inspirational messages on rocks for spring break

LOUISA COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Students at Moss-Nuckols Elementary School spent their day writing inspirational quotes and messages in a unique way before leaving for spring break.

Tables were set up inside the school with different colored rocks for students to participate in the Kindness Rocks Project, where they wrote 600 inspirational quotes and messages for the community.

Isleigh Ryalls, a third grader at Moss-Nuckols, wrote "dream big" on her rock to inspire people to follow their dreams.

"Sometimes, I have a dream and sometimes I don't think it's going to come true but eventually it does," she said. "I thought it would be good to tell them that it might come true."

Kathleen Fox, a math teacher at Moss-Nuckols, said the Kindness Rocks project allows students to learn how to spread kindness.

"Students can walk up to a rock and they will just get to share any kindness message they want to share," she said.

Fox also said the project gives the students a lesson on how to use their words to make a positive impact on people.

"We talk about how powerful our words are and our voices are and it shows that they can really impact someone's day when they find this rock," she said.

If you find a rock, Fox asks people to message the Moss-Nuckols Elementary School Facebook page.

Fox hopes to put together a photo album of the rocks and where they were found.
