February 17 was Random Acts of Kindness Day. We did not have school that day. But, that does not mean that kindness is not shown around our school each and every day! Here are just a few ways that kindness shines!
On the 100th day of school, third graders challenged themselves to raise 100 cans per classroom to show that they're 100 days smarter AND kinder! They collected, sorted and graphed the items. Wolf Creek third grade donated 412 items to the Spring Hill Food Pantry! What a kind way of celebrating the 100th day of school!
At the beginning of February, the Wolf Creek Community Service Club worked hard to spread some kindness both in our school and out in the community. Some students created Valentine’s Boxes for staff members. All students were encouraged to draw or write a note to a staff member in our building. Other Community Service Students created Valentines for the residents of a nursing home in our community.
Throughout the month of February, Ms. Pfingsten has been working with students during guidance lessons on the skill of empathy. Students heard stories illustrating empathy and kindness, role-played scenarios demonstrating kindness, created their own colorful “kindness pictures”, and wrote about acts of kindness that they have participated in outside of school. Students also brainstormed ideas of how they could show kindness during their school day in their classrooms and throughout the building.
We are very proud of how all of our Wranglers show kindness!
