What's going on this week!

Through our mentoring periods, we are beginning a series of kindness lessons in an effort to develop a culture of kindness at Russellville Middle School. Creating a culture of kindness is not an easy thing to do as it takes time, commitment, and courage on the part of everyone. A "culture of kindness" encompasses what a school values, celebrates, tolerates, and teaches. It doesn't just magically happen, but has to be incorporated into everything we do as organization...and it needs to be owned by everyone!

With all that happens in our busy days and all the things that are going on in school and in our personal lives, it is easy to be distracted and let frustration take over. It is challenging to be kind all the time and to slow down long enough to empathize, listen, give of ourselves, and open our eyes to see that someone may need our help or encouragement....even if they aren't asking for it.

Creating a culture of kindness is not easy. Although it is hard work, there is no better work that our school can do and it needs to be the foundation of what we do each day. Without a culture of kindness, where everyone feels safe both physically and emotionally, it will be hard to accomplish the goals we have set.

To bring a culture of kindness to life at Russellville Middle School, we will need kind, loving, passionate people on our team who will lead, inspire, and encourage each day. Don't forget to laugh and celebrate random acts of kindness at every turn and always remember to laugh and smile and let your passion shine about why you love being an educator.

Have a "kind" week at Russellville Middle School!
