Dear JP Parents & Children,
Johnson Park has some of the kindest and most compassionate children and parents. This week we get to show what we are made of! The Great Kindness Challenge is upon us. What an awesome opportunity to start off 2021 in a positive way!
Our JP community will observe the Great Kindness Challenge starting Monday, January 25th - Friday, January 29th.
On Monday, Homeroom teachers will kick-off the week with their students and each student will be given a Kind Acts checklist to complete throughout the week (see attached).
Tuesday through Friday, Homeroom teachers will engage their students in SEL activities in their Morning Meeting and will promote the following Spirit Days to celebrate The Great Kindness Challenge! Please encourage and support your child’s participation in the daily activities:
- Tuesday - Ride the Kindness Wave (Wear your favorite beach/surf attire)
- Wednesday - Peace, Love, and Kindness Day (Hippie attire or tie-dye)
- Thursday - Powered by Kindness (Dress as your favorite superhero)
- Friday - Shine Bright with Kindness (Wear neon clothes)
Parents—we need your help! Please take pictures of your child(ren) completing the acts of kindness at home and around the community and share them with our Music Teacher, Ms. Ketterer. She will collect these photo submissions through her Canvas page. Ms. Ketterer has volunteered to compile the photos into a slide show so we can share it with all of our students and families!
We are excited to take on this challenge this year, a year where being kind to one another is so, so important. Join in the fun with your children—we welcome family photos, too!
LET’S DO THIS JP!!
