Parents; Just a reminder that this week we will be participating in The Great Kindness Challenge where we will join thousands of other schools across the country to create a culture of kindness. This challenge is part of a bullying prevention initiative that will help children build kindness, unity and respect at school and beyond. Please help your child perform as many of the acts of kindness listed on the checklists as possible. Also be talking about being kind and why it is so important. Try to reach outside of your immediate family. Anywhere you may go, be aware of opportunities that you can encourage him or her to be kind. Get the whole family involved. Also talk to them about how being kind makes them feel about themselves. Check off these acts of kindness and bring them back to school. Thanks so much for your help!
