Kindness Challenge - May 16-20
St. James students and teachers will be participating in the Great Kindness Challenge, which ties so nicely to our school theme: Be Kind. The Challenge is dedicated to performing acts of kindness to create a bully-free, safe and caring school environment. Students accept the challenge with the understanding that bullying is weak and kindness is strength. They will work towards completing 50 kind acts individually, in their class and with other students. In addition to classroom activities, there are some fun, school-wide activities planned:
Illustration Contest for 50 Ways to Create a Kinder World SJA Book, Kind Quotes, Recess Kindness Station to complete kind acts, songs, Buddy Bench and Kindness chains. Please see the additional Kindness Spirit Days listed below!
