This week our school participated in the Great Kindness Challenge. Our guidance counselor, Amy Spanbauer, and our PBIS aide, Kim Berry, organized the week.
The Great Kindness Challenge is a proactive and positively powerful anti-bullying tool. It is one week devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible in school, at home and in the community. All kids deserve to learn in a safe, supportive and dynamic environment. The Great Kindness Challenge provides a powerful tool that actively engages students, teachers, administration, families and community in creating a school culture of acceptance, tolerance, unity and respect.
During 3rd, 4th and 5th grade lunches on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we had a Kindness Station set up in the cafeteria. This station was set up with various art supplies so the students could use part of their lunch period to make a card expressing their thanks to someone special to them.
During the assembly on Monday, the students were treated to a movie starring some teachers and administrators who were inspired by the challenge.
The entire week was exceptional and I hope that everyone continues to spread kindness.
