THROW KINDNESS LIKE CONFETTI!!
“Imagine a world where people look out for each other. Where we all pay it forward. Where success is measured in selfless acts. Where kindness is the philosophy of life. It’s easy to think of kindness as an innate talent, something you either possess... or don’t. But that’s not the case. Kindness is a skill – and like any skill, it can be developed with practice and repetition.”--unknown
In honor of the month of love and friendship AND National Random Acts of Kindness Day(February 17th), our school will be promoting acts of kindness! Students, teachers and school employees will be on the lookout beginning February 1st for “Acts of Kindness” at recess, in the classroom, in special classes, in the hallway, on the bus and in the cafeteria. When an act of kindness is spotted, a nomination form can be requested from Ms. Lorie Boyd, elementary counselor. Once the form is turned in, the student nominated will receive recognition on morning announcements, a kindness certificate, and a kindness bracelet. At the end of each month, a kindness committee will review all nominations from that month and choose one student for the overall winner of the month. This student will receive a prize bag. We would like to continue this kindness promotion for the rest of the school year.
Rules of Kindness Challenge:
*A student cannot nominate his or her self.
*A student cannot asked to be nominated. Acts of kindness should come from the heart and not expect recognition.
*Students do not need to inform the person they are nominating. In fact, its best if they say nothing and simply let it be a surprise for that student.
*Students may make one kindness nomination per week. .
