KINDNESS WEEK-January 23-27

This week if Kindness Week.  Parents were given a flyer of what to expect for Kindness week in your child’s take home folders.  We are promoting kindness and showing students the benefits of being kind. Our motto this week is “It’s Cool to be Kind!”

Monday–High Five Day

Tuesday–Give a Compliment and wear a Scarf Day

Wednesday–Say Thank you and wear a Snow Hat Day

Thursday–Pick up trash off the floor and wear Cool Shades Day

Friday–Give a Hug and wear a Mustache Day

Our poster contest is underway.  If your child would like to decorate a poster with our Kindness Theme, they can do that this week and turn it in by Friday for the judging.  A winner will be announced Friday in grades K-2 and 3-5.  Good Luck!

Throw Kindness around like confetti!  Pictures of the posters will be on next week so stay tuned…

January is Kindness Month

January is Kindness Month

Springfield Park is recognizing Kindness the whole month of January.

Our motto this month is “It’s COOL to be Kind!”

Mrs. Tate and myself will be teaching lessons on character education all this month and starting with Kindness.  Students will be getting a sheet of “kindness coupons” to cut out and place in the school for others to find.  On the back of the kindness coupons students will write kind words such as, “you are special”, “you are kind”, “smile”, “have a great day”.  This is a great way to promote kindness in the school and get kids involved in showing kindness to others.

January 23-27 is kindness week.  Students will have a poster contest with the kindness theme and we will have a spirit day everyday that week honoring kindness like a “High five day” or “Give a compliment day”.

Kindness coupons will be given to students to hide throughout the school to spread kindness to everyone.  The kindness coupons can be hidden in classrooms, backpacks, lunchboxes, library books, centers, etc… Spread the kindness!
