Great Kindness Challenge

Our school is proudly participating in The Great Kindness Challenge next week, a week-long program dedicated to creating a culture of kindness and compassion in communities worldwide. To help our students practice kindness and put their compassion into action, they will receive a Great Kindness Challenge checklist.  We will encourage all students to complete as many acts of kindness as possible. We are going to dress up each day with different themes to remind us of kindness.

  • Monday: “Team Kindness” Sports Day: Dress as your favorite sports team
  • Tuesday: “Share the Kindness” Twin Day: Coordinate with a friend to dress like twins (or triplets)
  • Wednesday: “Crazy for Kindness” Crazy Hair and/or Crazy Socks Day
  • Thursday: “I Dream of Kindness” Pajama Day
  • Friday: “Cheetahs are Kind” School spirit day: dress in your Fantastic Friday shirt and school colors of black and yellow
