Kindness involves being nice to other people and doing the right thing as often as possible. Gratitude is the readiness to show appreciation and to return kindness.
October was National Bullying Prevention Month. In guidance, we had discussions and completed activities to unite our community, educate and raise awareness of bullying.
Check out the Uplifting that is going on from October!

Orange "Gratitude Spots" can be spotted throughout the halls. When students step on the spot, they will be encouraged to share something they are thankful for. They can be used at any time.
Soon, students will be writing their gratitude on sticky notes to create a beautiful "Gratitude Wall" of notes which will be displayed in the cafeteria. STAFF MEMBERS will be encouraging the students to write about something/someone different every time they write. Although lunch is a great time for this, we will be working on writing some of these notes after they finish work.
To help students transform their gratitude into kindness, teachers and students will be passing out orange "Kindness Cards" whenever they see the good in someone. Since these cards say "You Matter" on them, kids are encouraged to explain WHY someone matters when they pass on the card. Students may also make their own cards to pass out!
