The Great Kindness Challenge

We are going to kick off The Great Kindness Challenge this week for the start of February, which will run the rest of the school year.  


Hybrid students will participate in the challenge, during indoor recess, students will have the opportunity to decorate strips of paper with messages of love and hope.  These strips of paper will be connected to make a 'Kindness United' chain that will be strung up through the building.


For virtual classrooms, students can create their own links to be shared on Google Classroom. Students are also welcome to create links and return them to school to be included with the school-wide chain. 


Here is the YouTube Kickoff video in both regular and Video Link format:
