A lesson in compassion: Put a colorful Band-Aid on it

Bethesda / Chevy Chase / Potomac / Kensington

TALK OF THE TOWN
It’s never too early to learn about setting goals, and kindergartners at Norwood School in Bethesda set an ambitious goal for themselves: to collect 5,000 boxes of bandages for pediatric cancer patients at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington. As part of a lesson on compassion — the private school’s value of the month for November — the students decided to collect the bandages for young patients being treated at the hospital, said kindergarten teacher Shannon van Yperen. And not just any bandages, but colorful, superhero, cartoon character, crazy design bandages — anything but plain old hospital bandages.
