Our students are participating a in 21 days of kindness challenge. Thanks to a generous donation, this challenge was launched with a special presentation by the organization “Be The Game” for our students that focussed on empowering students to believe that they can make a difference to help make our world a better place through simple acts of kindness. Since then I have seen many students latching onto the phrase “Kind Everytime” and really trying to make a difference. I am extremely encouraged and proud of our students who are working together and as individuals to help make our school a better place.
We interviewed some of our students about the Kind Everytime Challenge and put together this short video of what they had to say.
Participating in this project has again reminded me how the smallest acts of kindness can have a large impact on the environment, culture, and those around us that we interact with everyday. Sometimes, it is easy to forget to recognize the value that each person has and show appreciation for them in an intentional way and on a consistent basis. In this spirit, I would like to take a moment to thank the many people in our community (students, staff, parents, volunteers, etc.) who through their own acts of kindness help make our school awesome. As we head into the busy Christmas season, I would like to invite us all to join our students in being extra intentional about being kind and showing our appreciation for our loved ones around us.
