The Great Kindness Challenge

Lee Elementary will be participating in The Great Kindness Challenge this week, Jan 26-30.  This is one week dedicated to creating a culture of kindness on campuses nationwide.  Last year 1,099 schools participated!  Lee Elementary is proudly participating in this proactive, positive bullying prevention initiative!

All students will receive a Great Kindness Week checklist with 50 kind deeds.  Please encourage your child to complete the checklist to show the world that kindness matters.  If your child completes their checklist by Friday, January 30th, have them turn it into Ms. Sepp for a special surprise.

During guidance lessons we will be reading What If Everybody Did That?, The Invisible Boy or Ordinary Mary's Extraordinary Deed to spur our conversation about kindness and paying it forward.

 Then we will watch some inspirational videos...

Here is a glimpse of the many amazingly kind acts that happened throughout the challenge week:

We had 100% participation and ***63 students*** complete the entire 50 kind act challenge, designating Lee Elementary as a 2015 Kindness Certified School:
