Happy 2019 Hawkins Families!

Welcome back and happy new year! I hope all of you had a relaxing and enjoyable break with your child(ren). I know that I loved every minute of my time at home with my family. We are so excited to begin our annual Kindness Challenge at Hawkins! Today or Monday, your child will be bringing home a packet with explicit directions on how they can participate. Our WIG (Wildly Important Goal) for the months of January and February is to do 4500 acts of kindness as a Hawkins Family. Please help your child participate. The goal is to have every child and adult at Hawkins perform at least 8 acts of kindness over 8 weeks. We will be tracking our kindness data with stringing hearts in our hallways. If you are willing to volunteer putting the hearts up, please email me: kiehlerb@brightonk12.com. We are so excited to begin spreading even MORE kindness around our community and school.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!
