In honor of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, first and second grade students at the Nantucket New School were asked to think about what it means to care for other people and to create something that illustrates this important act. For one it was simply sharing a cookie. For others it was holding a hand.

Be sure to check out all of the students’ interpretations of caring at the Nantucket Cottage Hospital during the month of November. Their masterpieces will be on display in the hallway between the main lobby and the ER.

As is so often the case, looking through the eyes of a child gives us new perspective and reminds us that we don’t need to go to great lengths to care for others. We need just offer a hand…or a cookie.
