The positive effects of kindness are experienced in the brain of everyone who witnessed the act, improving their mood and making them significantly more likely to “pay it forward.” -Jamil Zaki
Cambridge Park families,
While we always teach kindness and respect here at Cambridge Park, we are participating in a week-long initiative that encourages and celebrate acts of kindness with intentional, developmentally appropriate school-wide activities. These activities act as a springboard for classroom discussions and additional activities. We hope you'll join us on Friday, February 17th for our Buddy Reading event where we'll be celebrating Black culture & history, and a love for literacy with our friends and families (information below).
Have a wonderful weekend,
Maggie Lazur, Principal
