From The Desk Of Mrs. Doyle....

Dear Families,


On behalf of Peter Noyes School, we are so grateful to all our United States veterans and we thank you for your service and sacrifice. We miss the days of having an all-school celebration with our honorable Sudbury veterans around Veterans Day and we hope we’ll be able to gather safely next year to show our appreciation to the veterans in person. Thank you, Veterans!!


World Kindness Day, Saturday, November 13, 2021

At Noyes, we often talk about choosing to be kind and all the ways we can “fill someone’s bucket” by offering a compliment, a smile, or a hand. Tomorrow there’s an official day for showing and celebrating kindness and I hope we all participate. Here are some simple ideas to get our kindness juices flowing:

  • Write a positive note on a post it for someone or send a handwritten card

  • Call someone you haven’t talked to in a while and ask how they are doing

  • Compliment someone

  • Send a positive text to 5 of your contacts

  • Write a note on a receipt at a restaurant

  • Invite someone to join you for a fun activity

  • Offer to help someone who needs it

  • Bake something for someone

When I think about kindness, I often think of a particular Noyes parent who regularly leaves a kind note in a postcard when she wants to show her appreciation of something someone has said or done. It’s quite touching. Let’s all join her in spreading a little extra kindness in the world this weekend.
