Kindness Week at MDE

November 6-9

 

Our annual Kindness Week at MDE is almost here!  Acts of Kindness can be as simple as pushing in someone’s chair, giving a compliment or making someone laugh. Students will have BKIND Bingo cards on their desks all week to challenge them to complete these kind acts throughout the week. Students will also be engaged in a Kindness Rocks project, allowing them to paint river rocks as a way to both express their uniqueness and share inspiring words with others.  

 

Kindness Week falls on the same week as our Book Fair this year.  Please encourage your child to enter the Be Kind Coloring Contest (due 10/27) and check out the Book Fair table with R.J. Palacio’s “Wonder” and other titles that focus on kindness and acceptance.
