In Mrs. Creamer’s class, Genesis helped Ethan make his snowman without being asked. Ethan had been absent, and she was trying to help him catch up. Also from Mrs. Creamer’s class, Aminata helped Avayah pick up her shoebox full of supplies when it was dropped. She was up and helping before I even realized exactly what had happened! She also did it quietly!
Zachary from PreK asked a peer to play when he noticed she was upset. She immediately smiled and they played together.
Sophia and Landon Graham have been helping out their next-door neighbor since COVID became a part of our reality. Due to the neighbor's congestive heart failure, "effortless" tasks are not so effortless for her. Last year, Sophia and Landon helped bag more than 17 bags of leaves, which also required hauling them to the front of her house. Now they are helping her out with simpler tasks such as taking out her trash and recycling bins and returning them the next day. Most recently, when her entire family came down with COVID, Sophia and Landon helped with the grocery shopping and delivered them in small easy to carry bags outside of her front door.
Arayah from Ms. Moura's class was so kind to offer all the sight word cards she earned in a game to a sad friend!
Derek and Ava show kindness every day by helping others and by coming to school early every day to prepare the morning announcements!
Alexander from Ms. Robert's class helped his friend clean up all his supplies when they spilled on the floor.
Liam from Ms. Sharon’s PreK helped his friend open his snack.
Evan from Mrs. Aquilante’s class is always helping to clean the classroom and pick up things, even though most of what he picks up isn't even his!
Nahla from Mrs. Creamer’s class filled up the ketchup container without being asked and she doesn't even ever use it!
Brandon from Ms. Lucca's class voluntarily helped another student with their work.
Jamie from Ms. Lucca's class so polite and stopped to let an adult walk in front of him in the hall.
We will continue to recognize students for their acts of kindness this week!
