We are beginning our first No Place for Hate (NPFH) project on Monday, November 5th. In an effort to uplift our community, our school is going to run a two week Gratitude Campaign through the Look for the Good Project. This inspiring program will begin on Monday, November 5th and run for two weeks. All students and staff will participate and you are welcome to join in too! Starting on Monday, November 5th, orange “Gratitude Spots” will be placed in hallways throughout the school to remind students and staff to think about what they are thankful for. If you step on one, think about what you are thankful for and share it with your child. Each morning, students will be writing their gratitude on sticky notes to create a beautiful “Gratitude Wall” of notes which will be displayed in the front hallway. If you would like to add your own gratitude to the wall, there will be extra sticky notes in the main office. In addition, you may find your child carrying an orange “Kindness Card” which says “You Matter” on it. Encourage them to tell you why they received the card and who they might give it to next. If your child has not received a card yet, encourage them to make their own Kindness Cards to give out at school. The more cards we circulate, the more we will remind students and staff to share their appreciation and kindness with each other!
