WELCOME TO THE GREAT KINDNESS CHALLENGE!
Our school is proudly participating in The Great Kindness Challenge, a week-long program dedicated to creating a culture of kindness and compassion in communities worldwide.
Considering the life-altering global pandemic, we believe it’s more important than ever to give our students the opportunity to participate in this uplifting week of kindness.
To help our students practice kindness and put their compassion into action, they will receive a Great Kindness Challenge checklist.
WHEN: January 24 - 28, 2022 WHERE: John E. Riley
WHAT: The Great Kindness Challenge #KindnessMatters #GreatKindnessChallenge
Together, we will lift each other up, cheer each other on and show the world that KINDNESS MATTERS!
Please watch our kickoff assembly below.
QUOTE OF THE DAY: Ralph Waldo Emerson
“You cannot do kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson.
We will be counting all of the kind acts completed by our students on the KINDNESS JAR hung up in the hallway by the nurse's office. Make sure that if you do a kind act, you tell your teacher or Ms. A!
Today's Activity will be for you to do 1 kind act for someone else. This could be holding the door, saying please or thank you, making someone a picture or helping a parent at home.
