Marshall Elementary School is celebrating kindness all month long! Students are participating in daily challenges throughout February to spread kindness in their classrooms and throughout the school community.
Today is the first day of the challenge and educators are introducing the concept of kindness and promoting discussion in their classrooms. The school will have a table set up during lunch recesses for students to complete a “100 ways to be kind” activity, which will turn into a display in the cafeteria to honor both the 100th day of school and the kick off to Kindness Month. Students will be given out special kindness tickets throughout the month for when they display an act of kindness. On Friday, March 3, the school will celebrate the conclusion of the challenge at their sing-along assembly.
Here are a few of the challenges on their calendar, which you can incorporate into your own days too!
- Feb. 3 - Day 3: Smile at everyone you walk past all day
- Feb. 10 - Day 8: Write a thank you note to a school staff member
- Feb. 23 - Day 16: Sit by somebody new or someone you don’t know very well in the cafeteria
- Feb. 24 - Day 17: Give everyone you see a high five
