Kindness Week

Students celebrated a week of kindness by decorating doors with thoughtful sayings. Students wrote Valentine's Day cards to veterans. They wrote down actions they could take to treat each other in a respectful manner and they sent kindness notes to friends, teachers, and family. It was all part of Half Day's Kindness Challenge.

The Great Kindness Challenge provides a powerful tool that actively engages students, teachers, administrators, families, and communities in creating a culture of compassion, acceptance, unity, and respect. The week wrapped up with an assembly featuring Pete's Diary, a pair of motivational speakers who sing and challenge students to spread kindness.
