Great Kindness Challenge Photo

On Friday January 27, our school will be participating in the Great Kindness Challenge Photo. We are asking that students wear a specific color t-shirt or shirt based on their grade level. Our goal is to create a rainbow surrounding a heart for the photo.
  • Fifth Grade students wear red
  • Fourth Grade students wear orange
  • Third Grade students wear yellow.
  • Second Grade students wear green.
  • First Grade students wear blue.
  • Tk and Kindergarten students wear violet/purple.

If your child doesn't have the grade level specific color, they can wear a light-colored or white t-shirt.
