Northeast will be participating in The Great Kindness Challenge next week. The week will begin with All School Meeting led by the Fifth Grade Ambassadors.Each day will have a theme. We will start each morning having a kindness quote of the day during the morning announcements. Additionally, we are going to have recess “kindness stations” that will give children the opportunity to create a special something as an act of kindness.
Another fun activity is a Door Decorating contest! Students and classroom teachers will come up with a catchy kindness saying (examples could be the daily themes) and decorate their classroom doors! There will be a PreK-1 winner, a 2-3 winner and a 4-5 winner. The class winners will get a movie/popcorn party!
On Friday, we will gather again at 8:50 in the gym to celebrate our challenge. We ask all students to wear red or pink so we can create a huge heart! We’ll take a picture as a remembrance that kindness really is a “work of heart.” We will also announce the door contest winners.
The goal of the week is for students to see how acts of kindness affect them-both as the giver and the receiver. We hope that they will continue these actions long after the week ends!
