PHT Paws-itively News
February 25th, 2022
Dear Page Hilltop Families:
We are concluding our month-long celebration of the Great Kindness Challenge. Many schools observe the GKC for a single week in January. But our school has so many kind and caring community members (students/staff/families) that it would be impossible to complete all of our Random Acts of Kindness in a week.
As we head into March, does that mean we will forget about kindness? Absolutely not! We will continue to promote kindness, in every form, for the rest of the school year. We will recognize and celebrate acts of kindness each and every day. On the first day of the GKC, we shared our school mantra: KINDNESS MATTERS ... EVERY DAY ... EVERY WAY!
This will never change. Please read on to see pictures & captions of many different ways that we celebrated kindness at Page Hilltop. We love to have you share your ideas for kindness activities, at any time.
Thought for all of us to consider: "Listen to anything your children want to tell you. If you don't listen to the small stuff now, they won't tell you the big stuff later."
Thanks, as always, for sharing your children with us!
Fred Deppe, Principal
Matt Lutinski, Assistant Principal
