Random Acts of Kindness Week: February 9-15

In our student council meeting this morning, the members voted to have classrooms participate in Random Act of Kindness Week February 9-15. Their idea was to have each class choose a kindness project of their choice, and then we will video tape the projects to share at the assembly. I talked to Laura, and she gave her approval. This is not meant to take a lot of time from your schedule. Your class could vote to do a very small project, like pick up trash on the playground, kindergarten/fourth could write appreciation cards to their buddies, or write letters to veterans or military (Cory's idea.) You could decide to have students do an act of kindness during the week and record it on a heart to attach to a banner. You could do a larger project, too. During summer school, Angel and I were required to do a service project one week. We raised about $70 and collected items to help the Humane Society, and it didn't take much effort. You could decide to support a cause that is meaningful or personal to you or one of your students. www.randomactsofkindness.org has information about the week and lesson plans if you want to do more. I have attached project ideas, too. If you need help with a project, let me know. If you have a student council member in your class, they already have ideas. We discussed doing a school-wide project, but stuco wanted to do a class project. Lori has done a lot of kindness activities with her class, so she might have ideas to share, too.
