Champions Spread Kindness- Why Character Education is a big deal!

Kindness Cards

This year, Chandler Creek launched the ROCK STARS Club. This is a group of students who greet in the morning and work to spread kindness. In addition, we have added a Buddy Bench to our playground where students have a place to go if they cannot find a friend.

Children love the concept of Kindness. When they learn about empathy and helping others, it is natural to them. They have not been so greatly influenced by the larger world and their instincts are pure and authentic in regards to spreading joy and being kind to each other. To children, kindness is a noun and a verb and something that feels tangible. We can all learn from looking at the world through the eyes of a child.

We have also added a Kindness Card for students and teachers to recognize those that show random acts of kindness. We draw names on our news show and if recognized, we call our parents to give a shout out for Kindness.

These small strategies combined with Guidance lessons helps our school to be a school where students are valued and citizenship is just as essential as letter grades. Social and Emotional Growth is an area we can focus as adults, parents and teachers, and work together to create a better world.
