In an effort to build on our theme of Empathy-building, the District will be collecting and highlighting “Kinder Than Necessary” acts in our Flashes!
Today, we would like to highlight two kind acts that were performed by students!
Being Kind to Our Schools
These five Tam Valley students have taken it upon themselves, without being asked, to pick up litter around the school during their recesses, to keep it a beautiful, clean place to learn. They started out using small, plastic newspaper bags that their teacher obtained for them, but now they seek out Carlos, the custodian, for bigger bags. They pick up litter almost every day and each time take in quite a haul!
They sure are happy to keep Tam Valley looking good!
A group of anonymous students went around Strawberry Point's campus placing "Kinder Than Necessary Pumpkin Helpers" in every classroom (see picture). These little helpers were accompanied by letters addressed to teachers and students promoting empathy, kindness and good behavior.
We are excited to see how our empathy-building theme has been embraced by students and staff.
Thank you, Secret Kindness Agents!
