What? The Great Kindness Challenge is a proactive and positive bullying prevention initiative that improves school climate and increases student engagement. The Great Kindness Challenge is one week devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible. Students will be provided a checklist of 50 kind acts (as examples), students accept the challenge and prove that bullying is weak and kindness is strength. We proudly accept the challenge with other Royal Oak Elementary schools. PBIS focus for the week:)
