Kindness Drive

During the week of February 10-14, Groves Elementary will celebrate kindness and promote anti-bias concepts in order to create safe, inclusive and respectful classroom and school environments. We would also like to show kindness to our community during this week by collecting needed items. A group of our students have researched the needs of the homeless community and have come up with a plan to help. We would like for this to be a schoolwide effort to help raise awareness for those experiencing homelessness in our community.

Students are encouraged to bring the following items to donate during Kindness Week:


Kindergarten

Trial size toothpaste and toothbrushes


1st Grade

Granola Bars


2nd Grade

Quart size ziplock bags


3rd Grade

Soap bars


4th Grade
