Happy New Year and welcome to 2020!!!

We are excited to start our 2nd semester here at Brill. January is a busy and fun month for our school. The last week of the month (27th-31st) is dedicated to Kindness. This is where the Brill will participate in The Great Kindness Challenge. This week is devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible. Need some tips? Take a look below for some ideas to encourage your student(s) to complete. Try some yourself, the best form of leadership is modeling, take this opportunity to show your student kindness can happen ANYWHERE!

1. Take a treat to your local firefighter or police officers.

2. Write a thank you not to your mail carrier.

3. Paint a picture and give it to someone.

4. Smile at 25 people.

5. Hug your sibling or friend.

6. Cut out 10 hearts and leave them for 10 faculty members.

7. Leave a flower on someone’s doorstep.

8. Hold the door open for someone.

Feel free to discuss acts of kindness with you child and help them understand how important is to be the best we can be. We will also have additional activities for the students to take part in throughout the week. 2020 is going to be a great year and we are starting it out with KINDNESS!!!

Welcome back everyone!
