Last week in Chapel, Rev. Dunfee used this quote from Michelle Borba's book UnSelfie, "When kids practice kindness, they discover the joys of giving, feel the gratitude from others, see themselves as more compassionate and step briefly into the shoes of another."
This week we have been focusing on the word KINDNESS in morning meetings. We have been encouraging the students to practice small acts of kindness and empathize with others. We are donating school supplies and journals to schools that have been affected by Hurricane Harvey in Houston.
Each journal features a handwritten letter from one of our Third Graders wishing the hurricane victims well and include kind words and happy thoughts for a quick recovery.
We have so much and are happy to have this opportunity to share our materials and goodness.
