Celebrating 100 Days of School

Kindness Week Will be Celebrated at Kiest!

For Students....

We will have a Kindness Tree outside the cafeteria. We want students to notice the kind things that others do for them. As they notice the kind acts, they can write it (or you can help them write it) on a heart. Hearts will be available in Mrs. Willis' office and in your boxes. You can turn them in to Mrs. Willis so that we can display them on the tree. We would love to have a tree filled with hearts by Friday for our Valentine's Day celebration. I strongly believe that each class can have more than 100 kind acts by the end of this week!


For Staff....

Have you noticed the gumball machine outside the office? You can write your kind notes about staff members on the gumballs! Feel free to place those in Mrs. Willis' box as well.
