Random Acts of Kindness

During our contest this week, you were asked to do random acts of kindness for each other. You sent in so many wonderful things that you did! I wanted to share them below.

"I made Laura and Annie multiplication anchor charts for their classrooms and help the door open for Elizabeth this morning."

"I wrote Kristine a thank you note for all she does and to let her know we appreciate her!"

"I gave a candy bar to our 4 awesome custodians, gave a quick shoulder massage to Deb, Amy, and Lindsey, gave special minion tic-tacs to my buddy Sam, and texted Becky and Jacque to tell them it brightened my day to see them in the morning,"

"I gave Lindsey a stack of kid's books for her class library, had lunch with a new sub on campus, and complimented, hugged, and thanked Jamie for being such a dedicated teacher!"

"My students made cards for a sick teacher and I brought them to Stacie so she could read all the nice things they said about theatre. I also told Gayla she looked nice."

"I picked up a 4th grade Play Day ribbon and helped it find it's home."

"I brought donuts to a coworker who had a tough Monday."

"I got lunch for Maile and Erica."

"I moved the team ELA plans around for the rest of the school year so our team could plan today."

"I helped Tasha with lunch duty so she could assist Lindsey in the office - a chain reaction of kindness!"

"I covered Courtney's morning duty."

"I refilled Stephanie's water bottle at lunch."

"I took Holly home from school since she didn't have her car."

"I want to tell you about Lizzie who has been very helpful and welcomed me into her room to help her students with open arms. She is kind, patient, flexible and a very good teacher. I have developed a fondness and a respect for her and I am thankful I had the opportunity to work with her this year."

"I got Heidi her tea."

"I gave all the 4th grade teachers and custodians gift cards for all of their time and effort to help and support of the theatre program."

"I gave Heather extra free time today by covering her class for her for a little while."

"I let Tessie know what a great teacher I think she is. She is truly committed to her students and is making a huge difference in their lives."

"I delivered several of my teammates textbooks for them."
