Kindness Curriculum

The Kindness curriculum is on the agenda to discuss on June 3rd. I downloaded and shared with you the one from Character Strong (also in shared folder). Yesterday I downloaded all of the Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) lesson for K-8 in that same folder. Please review both in advance of the June 3rd meeting.

Hoagland Days Parade

Yes, we are having a float this year in the parade. We will be discussing it at our May 15th meeting. We need to get as many details worked out as possible by then. I want faculty, staff and school families to walk with us wearing school shirts. The trailer is taken care of as of now. We need to decide what to hand out etc. as well as any other details. Please be thinking about that and advertise in your newsletters that we want families to walk. I will do the same.
