Kindness Week at MDE

February 19th - 22nd

 

Our annual Kindness Week at MDE is here!  The events of this week are meant to remind us all of the importance of simply being kind to one another.  Acts of Kindness can be as simple as pushing in someone’s chair, giving a compliment or making someone laugh. 

This week will be filled with ways for our students to learn, explore and practice kindness. Studies show that encouraging kindness in youth promotes self-confidence, optimism, leadership and increased happiness.

Students will be engaged in the following activities throughout Kindness week:

Monday 2/18:

No School

Tuesday 2/19:

  • Student kindness quotes during morning announcements
  • Brighten someone’s day and wear YELLOW to kick off kindness week
  • During lunch, students write ways to be kind on handprints to attach to the kindness tree
  • Students will be given BKIND Bingo cards to complete throughout the week
  • The coloring contest page will be handed out to each student

Wednesday 2/20:

  • Student kindness quotes during morning announcements
  • Show your individuality by wearing different colors on “RAINBOW Wednesday”
  • Students will fill out Message Grams (kind messages) to give to other students

Thursday 2/21:

  • Student kindness quotes during morning announcements
  • Show you are standing up to BULLYING by wearing RED
  • Students can write kind messages in chalk during recess

Friday 2/22:

  • Student kindness quotes during morning announcements
  • Show your Eagle pride by dressing in SPIRIT WEAR
  • During lunch, students may add a link to the kindness chain by writing about an act of kindness they received or witnessed during the week
  • BKIND bingo cards and coloring contest submissions are to be returned to teachers

A hot chocolate party will be given to the class that has turned in the most completed BKIND bingo cards (one classroom winner per grade).

A $20 Target gift card will be awarded to the winners of the coloring contest (one for TK-2nd and one for 3rd-5th).

The winners will be announced on the loud speaker the week after Kindness week.

 

Thank You,
