World Kindness Day!

Dear LISD Families,

Tomorrow, November 13, is World Kindness Day, a global day that acknowledges the importance of being kind to one another, ourselves, and the world. The purpose is to help everyone understand that kindness is what binds us. Simple acts of kindness create a ripple effect that can inspire us to believe that we CAN make a positive difference in our community and world, one act at a time.

Here are ten free and simple ways to be kind:

1. Call a friend or relative you haven't spoken to in a while.

2. Hold the door for someone.

3. Compliment someone.

4. Send a kind card or note to a friend.

5. Offer to help someone with household chores or errands.

6. Pick up trash you see on the ground and throw it away.

7. Say "thank you."

8. Ask someone about their day and really listen.

9. Let someone get in line in front of you.

10. Volunteer.

We hope you will join us in celebrating World Kindness Day by talking to your family about ways we can all create more kindness in this world. Maybe you can create your own family top ten list!

Culinary Students to the Rescue!

Due to supply chain issues, the school has been unable to purchase certain ingredients like pasta. Chef John asked the Culinary class if they would be willing to make pasta, and the students were stoked.
