K-4 Students and their teachers took part in the Kindness Olympics on the morning of Valentine’s Day. Classes entered the gym with Olympic fanfare and started the Kindness Olympics with a brief description of what the Olympic rings represent and what the ideals of the real Olympic games are for the world.
Before the Kindness Olympics games began, all participants recited this pledge of kindness:
I pledge to myself, On this very day, To try to be kind, In every way.
To every person, Big or small, I will help them, If they fall.
When I love myself, And others too, That is the best, That I can do!
At the conclusion of the Kindness Olympics Mrs. Simmons presented the students with The Great Kindness Challenge: Family Edition. Each student was given a list of 50 acts of kindness. Families are encouraged to complete the Random Act of Kindness list as a family and submit it to Mrs. Simmons or Mrs. Gibb by April 30th for a chance to win movie passes to the Franklin Theater.
