  • Keep Kindness Going

    “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” -- Aesop

    While February has come and gone, my hope is that our challenge to Keep Kindness Going will continue. Our annual Month of Kindness, which happens in February has returned for the 2018-2019 school, with the same mission: Be kind, Make a difference, Pass it on.

    Students and staff alike were all responsible for catching others doing kind acts and recognizing them by giving them a Kindness Bracelet, which can found at Kindness Stations around the school. Once receiving a bracelet, students are encouraged to catch others doing kind things and passing their bracelet on.

    This year, we celebrated with Create Kindness Stations for the kids available for the students every Thursday during their lunch recess time, extra special recognition from adults with kindness stickers, and the option to complete a Kindness Challenge sheet where they had the chance to win several large Kindness Bears. Congratulations to all of our winners.

    Below are some great videos to check out that all of our students watched to kick off our Month of Kindness. I've watch both of these hundreds of times, and still think it is worth another watch!

    The more we know, the better we can solve problems and the more we'll be able to learn in school. Below are some great videos on what being an upstander means, and the difference between bullying vs. conflict. Have a watch!

  • National Bullying Prevention Month

    Posted by Ms. Yan on 10/5/2018 2:25:00 PM

    October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Each year, I go into the classrooms and review what bullying is and how we can all build a safe community together by being upstanders. The chart below is an example of what we go over in each classroom and the importance of knowing the differences and attaching the correct name to a specific event or incident. Many day to day occurrences fall under the Rude or Mean category. Be sure to review and use those “I” messages!

    What is Bullying?

  • #Kindness

    In addition to celebrating the many holidays and activities in February, we also celebrated a month dedicated to "Keep Kindness Going" in honor of Random Acts of Kindness. Kids and adults alike were responsible for catching others doing kind acts and recognizing them by giving them a Kindness Bracelet, which can be found at Kindness Stations around the school. Once receiving a bracelet, kids were then encouraged to catch others doing kind things and pass it on.

    Check out the great videos below that were part of our Kindness Challenge. Encourage your child to keep the kindess going at home too! One act of kindness can make all the difference to many.
