Dear RQMS Families:

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with an organization called Some 1 Like You (S1LY) to be a BE KIND HUMANS school.

We are the first school in Colorado to be an official BE KIND HUMANS school, there are other partnering schools in North Dakota, Wyoming, and Utah.

Some 1 Like You was founded out of the need to privately connect individuals with rare health conditions. S1LY developed a special initiative called the 'Be Kind’ project to provide partners at Ronald McDonald house charities with a lifetime membership to Some 1 Like You.

As a BE KIND HUMANS school, RQMS will participate with S1LY in two ways.

First, our fall fundraiser will be selling BE KIND merchandise.

We are not only spreading the word of kindness, supporting the cause of S1LY, but also raising money for the school. we will receive 50% of the profit from BE KIND merchandise!.

We will kick off our fall fundraiser on November 13th, 2019 which also happens to be

World Kindness Day!

  • All students will be attending a KINDNESS assembly. We can't wait for them to share the details of this experience with you! Students will also receive additional information about the fundraiser
  • Student Leadership will be going to West Ridge and Brantner Elementary to host an assembly, read to students, and introduce the organization emphasizing the importance of kindness.

Second, as one of our core values at RQMS is SERVICE, we as a school will participate with S1LY in BE KIND HUMAN projects. Our first project will be coming in December! Stay Tuned!

Please help us bring awareness while we build a community of KINDNESS while raising money for our school by participating in this amazing program.
