Week of February 1st-5th


As we approach our Kindness Week (February 8th-12th), we want to share the importance of being kind and showing compassion and empathy to others. We will start by evolving our Gratitude Trees to Kindness and Compassion. Simple activity: Allow students to select red, pink, purple or white construction paper and cut out a heart. If your little ones need assistance, we do have a heart diecut template you can pre-make. Have students commit to an act of kindness and compassion that they will do for someone else. After they make their hearts, have them share with a partner that will make them accountable for their actions. PTA will be placing the hearts on the trees. Please place completed hearts in my box.


Each day we will have a theme. I think the students will really enjoy the week.

MONDAY-"Make someone SMILE DAY!" Smiles are contagious! Share one with all you meet

TUESDAY-"Tell someone something KIND!" Words do matter! Give a compliment to students and staff

WEDNESDAY-"Write a note Wednesday!" Everyone loves a kind handwritten note! Share a few with friends and family.

THURSDAY-"SAY THANK YOU THURSDAY!" Let people know how you appreciate them-say THANK YOU!

FRIDAY-"FRIENDSHIP FRIDAY!" Find a new person to sit by at lunch or play with on the playground. Friendships are formed by simple acts of KINDNESS!

We will have a RED BALLOON release immediately following Good Morning Purefoy on February 12th. The balloons will represent our commitment to KINDNESS and COMPASSION. More information to come!

During the Valentine's Party students will participate in activities that will benefit others. From Blessing Packs to Valentine's Cards, Purefoy students will be involved in helping others!
