FEBRUARY

SCOTCH RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS WEEK

SCOTCH STUDENT'S SPREAD KINDNESS

As part of our emphasis on fostering a positive school environment and Capturing Kids’ Hearts, we will be celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Week in several ways all month long.


A random act of kindness is a simple act which brightens someone’s day. It can be something significant, like donating items to a charity, or something smaller, like holding a door open for someone. It can be planned in advance or happen on the spur of the moment.


Here’s how you can help at home: Let your child see you being kind to someone else. Encourage them to be kind to you, their siblings, and their neighbors. Point out kind acts you see others perform in real life, and in books or movies.


See below for more information on how students will participate in their classroom.
