February is Black History Month

We will be sharing daily quotes from individuals who made a significant impact in American History during our morning announcements this week:


Monday, February 20 - Friday, February 25, 2022 - No School


Monday, February 28, 2022:

On this last day of Black History Month, we recognize the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Obama. President Obama was the 1st Black President of the U.S and a Nobel Peace Prize recipient. In an address to American school children, President Obama said, "You can't let your failures define you—you have to let your failures teach you. You have to let them show you what to do differently the next time."

KINDNESS for PurposeFull Families

This month we’re talking about the beautiful character trait of Kindness. The dictionary defines it as: “the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.” But it is so much more than that!


The definition we are using in class is:

Kindness: the choice to act with words, gifts, or actions to bring appreciation, positivity, and encouragement to others and yourself.


Family PurposeFull Pursuit: Conversation Starters

  • What does Kindness look like in our home? What does it look like in our neighborhood? What does Kindness look like in our extended family, our faith or spiritual practices, our community centers, our sports teams, etc.?
  • Why is it important to show Kindness to people who aren’t kind to you?
  • What acts of Kindness have others shown you lately and how did you respond? How did it make you feel? How does random acts of Kindness help you grow?
