March Values

Kindness and Forgiveness

The Appletree community's core values for the month of March are kindness and forgiveness. Kindness makes the world go 'round! One of Appletree’s Golden Rules is to treat others the way you would like to be treated. Appletree emphasizes the importance of kindness each and every day.  As humans we all make mistakes. We must all learn to recognize and apologize for our mistakes. Learning to forgive others and move on is important for all of us to live happily. In this photo, our three year olds are smiling for a picture after our visit to Sunrise to see our Grand Friends.
