Random Acts of Kindness
Sunday, October 01, 2017
Imagine a world where people look out for each other and we all pay it forward. Acts of kindness are not only special for the receiver, but also feels good as the doer! Think about the last time you went out of your way to be kind to someone. Didn’t it make your day too? Spreading good feelings and making a difference will have a lasting effect and undoubtedly change the world around us.
For the 2017-2018 school year, Andrew students will be taking part in a “Kindness Challenge.” During our “Kindness Challenge” we will be tracking how many acts of kindness our students complete each month. Students can record their acts of kindness in their assignment notebooks/communication journals or students can complete an “Acts of Kindness” form which will include space for students to write a short description (or draw a picture) of what they did for someone else and return it to their classroom teacher so the act of kindness can be counted toward our school goal. If you choose to have your child complete an act of kindness form, a new form will be sent home each month.
We will be celebrating our progress toward meeting our goal during each monthly Leadership Assembly and we’ll look forward to celebrating meeting our goal at the end of this school year. Thank You for the support of your students as they work toward meeting this goal to make a positive impact and complete acts of kindness with family members, friends and people within our community.
Some random acts of kindness could include:
Sending a card to a friend
Helping an elderly person in your community
Thanking a service person for their hard work and dedication
Cheering up a loved one
Write a note of encouragement to a friend or family member
Sincerely compliment someone
Donate time to help a friend
Read a book to a child or an elderly person
Invite a new friend to play
Donating food for the Little Free Pantry/any food pantry
