Make Kindness Contagious!
How can you show kindness? How can your child show kindness? How can you make kindness contagious in your home, school and community?
The Great Kindness Challenge is a week (we are doing 2 at Watson) dedicated to creating a culture of kindness. Next week is nationwide, and we are adding in an additional week to run into our next Mindset Monday. Together as a building, we are promoting acts of kindness with the goal to make it contagious in the community.
Attached is a checklist of all kinds of things your child can do over the next two weeks- with even a few blank spots to add additional ones not on the list.
As the kids complete the lists- They don’t have to do everything- return them to school so they can place the list in the designated boxes for their grade. As you go through the next two weeks, please take pictures of them as you catch them in the act and e mail them to me. These pictures will be compiled and shown at our Mindset Monday assembly.
If you have any questions or have pictures, send to
Kim Snodgrass and Watson Elementary
“This year COSI on wheels has a brand new exciting program called “The Incredible Human Machine” As always UNITE greatly appreciates any volunteers to help make the day a success. It is best if you can volunteer all day but if you can only volunteer half a day that is understandable. However, ALL volunteers must attend the orientation at 8:15a.m. The shifts are 8:15-12:00 and 12:45-3:30. Please respond to the Remind message or email email@example.com. To sign up for UNITE remind please join the class dh64h or text @dh64h to 81010 a confirmation message will be sent to volunteers Jan 2 to remind them.”
