World Kindness Day!

Friday, November 13th is World Kindness Day! If students have a kindness shirt they should wear it on this day. World Kindness Day was started in 1998 to create a movement of being kind to one another. Mrs. Seibert will be sharing the difference between being nice and being kind. Being kind takes a little more effort. We'll be discussing ways to be kind at school, home and in the community. Random acts of kindness can be as simple as a note of affirmation or playing with another student that is feeling left out. Let's all spread a little extra kindness next Friday!

PTO Silent Auction

Bidding starts - today! Log onto to bid on theme park tickets during our silent auction. Since we did not have the Backyard BBQ in the spring due to COVID-19, we had some amazing tickets leftover.

We have already upgraded teachers’ computers (around $1,200) and funded classroom supplies ($1,700 so far).

This auction will allow PTO to continue to support our students and staff for the remainder of the school year. Items up for grabs are:

  • Kennedy Space Center Tickets (4)

  • Brevard Zoo (2)
