Kindness Counts Week is coming up! Our focus will be on positive behavior, recognizing acts of kindness and teaching our students that being kind is important. Let's work together, so we live in a kind & safer community!
We are kicking off our "Bee Kind" campaign with a Law Enforcement / First Responder Assembly on Friday, October 12. Law enforcement officers and firefighters will visit our students and let them check out their vehicles.
Our Kindness Counts Week will start on Monday, October 15. Students will be encouraged to practice acts of kindness at school and at home. They will be checking off kindness acts on their kindness passport. They can turn in their completed passport to their teacher on Friday, October 19.
"Kind Words" or compliment boxes will be placed around the school for students, parents and staff members to put in a positive note or comment about another student or staff member. They can write as many positive notes or comments as they want. The notes will be put up on posters and placed around the school when the students return from fall break.
There will also be a poster and a short essay contest. Posters should be around 18 x 22 and be about ways to show kindness. Essays should be about being kind, how an act of kindness can brighten someone's day or explain why kindness is important. All posters and essays are due by Friday, October 19. They can be turned into the PTA room any day during lunch or after school. Posters will be placed around the school and essays will be placed in the quad the week after fall break.
On Wednesday, October 17, the PTA will host a kindness station during lunch. Students can come and make a card for a staff member or their parents, etc.
Friday, October 19, is Kindness Rocks Day - Dress like a Rock Star!
It would be GREAT if the kindness discussions could continue at home! Check out these sites if you are interested:

Smiling Is Infectious
Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.
I passed around the corner
and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled I realized
I'd passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile,
then I realized it’s worth.
A single smile, just like mine
could travel ‘round the earth.
So, if you feel a smile begin,
don't leave it undetected.
Let's start an epidemic quick,
and get the world infected!
